Two Woodbridge Middle School students have won the Prince William County Service Authority’s (PWCSA) Model Water Tower Competition.
Held on Saturday, the annual event allows middle school students and fifth-graders in the Students Involved in Gifted Needs in Education Today (SIGNET) program to build model water towers. Those who placed received cash prizes.
Alyssa Casselle and Kylie Hayes, who submitted an entry that was based on candy, placed first, according to a release from the PWCSA.
“We were enjoying lollipops one day, and we thought, ‘why don’t we do that for the competition?’” Alyssa said in a release.
They won third place at last year’s Model Water Tower Competition.
Nachiketa and Saanvi Mahajan of Pennington Traditional School in Manassas won second place.
Benton Middle School student Matthew Duffett was the third place winner.
Jeremiah and Jerry Boasmanboon from Triangle-based St. Francis of Assisi School received honorable mention.
Most Innovative Design was awarded to Gabrielle Johnson of Benton Middle School and Matthew Johnson from Ashland Elementary School in Manassas.
