Model water tower competition, anyone?
The Prince William County Service Authority (PWCSA) is hosting their first event competition for Prince William-area middle schoolers on November 4.
“The goal of the event is for students to create a fully-functioning model water tower. Entries will be rated on their structural and hydraulic integrity, cost efficiency and design ingenuity. Cash prizes will be given to the three top-scoring individuals or teams,” stated a release.
So far, 19 teams have registered to participate.
The competition is being held at the Raymond Spittle Building at 4 County Complex in Woodbridge.
The competition is being held in conjunction with the Virginia Section of American Water Works Association (VA AWWA), which helped with a similar event in the Hampton Roads-area.
“We hope the kids have a lot of fun at the competition and take home a better understanding of what’s required to deliver the water they use every day,” stated VA AWWA Student Activities Committee member Mark Titcomb in a release.
“This is an awesome opportunity for middle school students in Prince William County to showcase their technical and creative abilities. We are eager to see what our talented young men and women will come up with,” stated PWCSA Community Relations and Outreach Manager Kathy Bentz in a release.
Judging for the competition begins at 9:45 a.m. and the awards ceremony will take place at 12:30 p.m.
