The North American Water Garden Society seeks funding from the Pepsi Refresh Project, which provides grants each month to groups looking to make a positive impact in the community.

| May 6, 2010

The North American Water Garden Society (NAWGS) submitted a proposal to the Pepsi Refresh Project for funding to install 50 outdoor ecosystem classrooms in schools across the U.S. through its Ponds for Kids program.

The Pepsi Refresh Project provides grants each month to winners with successful ideas to make a positive impact in the community. Over a thousand project ideas are submitted each month in various categories such as education, health, arts and culture and more.

Ponds for Kids is a cooperative project that helps schools construct self-sustaining pond ecosystems. Ponds for Kids brings the natural world right to schools – where it can be used as an outdoor classroom influencing a new generation of kids to have an understanding and appreciation for the environment.

Online voting for accepted proposals occurs during May and the top community projects receive funding from the Pepsi Refresh Project.

To vote for the Ponds for Kids proposal sponsored by the North American Water Garden Society, log onto www.refresheverything.com/pondsforkids. Voting can be performed once each day during the month of May. Winners are notified when results are tallied and are expected to complete their projects within 12 months.
