Join us for the First Annual Model Water Tower Competition hosted in Montgomery County, VA. The challenge is to build a structurally efficient model water tower that holds water and can be filled and drained quickly, while also being aesthetically pleasing.  Middle school students from public, private, or home schools can compete in teams of up to four students each.

The objective of the competition is to make participants aware of the importance of reliable drinking water and the rewarding opportunities available in the water profession. The competition does this by having students develop an idea into a functioning water tower, just like water professionals do in the real world!  Prizes will be awarded to the top three scoring teams, with values to be announced at a later date.
