Prince William County middle school students have a chance to win cash prizes this fall.
Registration is now open for the second annual Model Water Tower Competition.
The Prince William County Service Authority (PWCSA) and the Virginia Section of the American Water Works Association are hosting the event on November 3, according to a release.
It will run from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Raymond Spittle Building in Woodbridge.
“It is a STEAM-power competition where we have middle school students from public schools, private schools and home schools compete and build model towers and win prizes in first, second and third place,” PWCSA Outreach and Education Assistant Michelle Bouchard told What’s Up Prince William.
They will be judged on their design as well as their cost, structural and hydraulic efficiency.
PWCSA will provide the tower connectors. Participants are asked to use recycled materials for the other parts.
Students must sign up before October 19.
Those interested in learning more about competition can visit the Service Authority’s website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
