Environmental Exhibitors – School Days on the Waterfront (postponed until 2021)

August 2020 Update: For this year’s Salmon Homecoming School Days program, the Board of Directors has decided to provide a virtual experience to students rather than our usual School Days events. The virtual program began October, 15th, 2020. Visit our School Days webpage for more information.

2021 School Days

In the past, interactive presentations and displays have attracted the most interest and attention and are strongly encouraged. Please note Environmental Exhibitors are welcome to participate in the public event on  Friday and Saturday.

We typically expect approximately 500 fourth and fifth-grade students each day for the School Days program.  We welcome Environmental Exhibitors! There is no fee for participation in the School Days event. We will coordinate with each exhibitor to participate in an interactive activity around one of the following themes:

  • Salmon life cycle and ecosystems
  • Habitat protection and restoration
  • Stormwater and Pollution
  • Culture and Communities

Exhibit spaces (10 ft. wide x 10 ft. deep) will be located in the Seattle Aquarium. Tables must be staffed at all times during the hours of 10:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. The Salmon Homecoming Celebration assumes no responsibility for your display. Please be sure to provide your own hand truck, carts, etc., if needed for loading and unloading.

Please note that direct fundraising is not allowed. However, we welcome any flyers and brochures about your organization and any events you may be having.

School Days Exhibitor 2021 Applications will be available from the Seattle Aquarium.
