2018 Model Water Tower Competition

Congratulations to the 2018 Model Water Tower Competition winners!

St. Francis student Jerry Boasmanboon and teammate Renu Nguyen-Rawoor of Graham Park Middle School combined key elements of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas to create their festive first place tower.

"The kids not only utilized different materials and structural concepts, but made it uniquely theirs by decorating their water towers to match their creative sides,” said competition judge Andrew Cockram, a GIS Technician at the Service Authority.

Second place went to Maddi Waltsak of Antietam Elementary School, and third went to the team of Kylie Hayes, Erin Fortson, Laurie Kouevi, Stella Kouevi and Alyssa Cassel of Woodbridge Middle School.

Judge Glenn Pearson said he was just as impressed at the level of enthusiasm and curiosity shown by the parents during the event.

"At the hydraulics station, I was asked many questions (from kids and adults) about how our water distribution system operates, how the tanks work, why are tanks look different from site to site, how much water our tanks hold and so on," said Pearson, the Service Authority’s Deputy Director of Operations & Maintenance. “The level of curiosity was much higher than I initially expected."
