The University of Northern Iowa Recycling and Reuse Technology Transfer Center (RRTTC), in partnership with several other agencies and organizations, will sponsor the seventh annual Iowa Children's Water Festival on Thursday, May 15, at Des Moines Area Community College campus in Ankeny.

The festival has received the Governor's Environmental Excellence Award, the Iowa Academy of Science Distinguished Service Award, and the Iowa State Water Resources Research Institute Award.
