MODEL WATER TOWER COMPETITION
The annual Model Water Tower Competition was started by the Georgia Association of Water Professionals and the Georgia Section of the American Water Works. The purpose is to provide information to young students on water resource engineering, infrastructure, water treatment and conservation in hope that some will become future water professionals. The competition’s mission statement is: “From’s Today’s Youth Come Tomorrow’s Leaders – Let’s Lead Some To The Water Profession.”
Clayton County Water Authority’s inaugural competition was held in November of 2018 at Rex Mill Middle School. Students were taken through several test stations (materials, dimensions, hydraulics) and judged on structural efficiency, design ingenuity and an interview presentation. Scoring then determined the top three teams (see photos below).
1st Place – Water Kids
2nd Place – Team Oreo
3rd Place – Mighty Morphin Flower Arrangers
