Dawson-  Over the next three days, more than a thousand south Georgia students will learn more about the importance of water.

The Water Festival is a hands on opportunity for students to learn and appreciate the many uses of water. Tuesday students learned about the water in the environment, wildlife and water, water and soil erosion and a lot more.

"I learned that you're supposed to use water more than once cause if you use it more than just once you're wasting your water," said Taliyah Williams, fifth grader at Sylvester Elementary.

"I learned that mosquitoes breed in water and if you find some mosquitoes in water you can just turn it over so the mosquito won't feed from you," said Courtland Hughley, fifth grader at Lincoln Elementary.

The fifth annual festival sponsored by Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful will continue over the next two days at the Hooks - Hanner Environmental Resource Center in Terrell County.
