Join us for the Eighth Annual Model Water Tower Competition in the Tidewater area. 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 achieves 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 a top prize of a $75 Visa gift card for each member of the first place team, $50 gift card for each member of the second place team, and $25 gift card for each member of the third place team.
