STORM is proud to announce that Maricopa County Environmental Services Department has earned the 2016 National Association of Counties award for its School Outreach Program. Since 2012, the MC Environmental Services Department has been re-working their outreach program. In 2014, they incorporated a mascot, Sam the Salamander, a slogan, Make Clean Storm Drains Happen, and a multi-grade educational lesson program to ramp up the school age stormwater education. The program outperformed permit requirements for classroom training, and owes some of its success to alignment with the Arizona Science State Standard, which was achieved by seamlessly meshing stormwater lessens with grade specific school curriculums. This approach has created a unique learning atmosphere for k-8 students. Program success has been measured by the rise in teacher class requests and the surge of school age children trained.
