   Illinois Section American Water Works Association Sponsored 
The Illinois Section American Water Works Association (ISAWWA) is proud to announce the State-Wide Annual Model Water Tower Competition (MTWC). The Competition provides students with a fun-filled, science oriented competition aimed at introducing middle school aged students to opportunities in the water profession. We are pleased and excited that students who have won their local contests will be competing at this state champion event. 
This competition requires students to design and build a water tower with specific size and height requirements. The models are judged based on 5 categories including cost efficiency, hydraulic efficiency, structural efficiency, design ingenuity and interview presentation.
