Rethink Your Drink: Choose Water!

The Delta Dental Foundation will launch its Rethink Your Drink: Water’s Cool at School program in North Carolina on September 4, 2018, to help encourage students to drink more water during the day.

Providing access to drinking water throughout the school day gives students a healthy alternative to sugary drinks like soda pop and sports/juice drinks. Drinking plenty of water can help combat obesity, increase energy levels and may improve students’ cognitive functions. Further, if fluoridated, drinking water also plays an important role in preventing cavities.

As part of its Rethink Your Drink campaign, the Delta Dental Foundation has committed a total of $65,000 to REPLACE existing drinking fountains at a number of selected schools in North Carolina with new Elkay water fountain/bottle filling stations.

Your school could win! 

Bottle filling stationYour school could be one of those selected to receive the following:

  • One brand new water fountain/bottle filling station (including installation)
  • Water bottles for all students and staff
