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.”

2020-21 Competition

The third annual competition was held at our Shamrock Community Use Building. On April 21, 2021 CCWA hosted 21 sixth graders from three CCPS middle schools including Rex Mill Middle School, Babb Middle School & Mundy’s Mill Middle School.  Students were taken through several test stations (materials, dimensions, hydraulics). On the following day, students participated in virtual interviews with our panel of judges. Based on the scores provided by the judges and data from each testing station, we determined the top three teams (see photos below). Several superlative awards were also given. CCWA is proud of the efforts made by all of the competition’s participants. We look forward to continuing to host the MWT competition next spring, and expanding our partnerships with Clayton County Public Schools.
