This brief sheet outlines the steps to take before, during and after the Challenge.
Since 2017, the Tchin-tchin Challenge allows the celebration of water during the third week of March on the occasion of Canada Water Week and World Water Day.
The Tchin-tchin Challenge is an awareness raising activity that encourages elementary school students to drink water during school lunches. It aims to promote water as the best drink for hydration and caring for one’s health, while having fun at the same time.
In March 2022, 551 schools and over 125,400 students participated in the Tchin-tchin Challenge!
From March 20th to 24th, 2023, let's all raise our glasses and water bottles to toast to healthy hydration!
