In a collaboration with the PBS Show Curiosity Quest, the MWA challenges teams of middle school and high school students to solve a real-world problem for a chance to win a scholarship of up to $3,000 for their school.
This year’s competing teams hail from Melva Davis Academy of Excellence, Oak Hills High School, and Options for Youth in Victorville. They met with water industry experts in October to learn about how state and federal water quality regulations don’t apply to domestic well owners.
They were then sent off to develop a system, management solution, or series of standards that domestic well owners can use to ensure they are drinking safe and economically affordable water.
The teams will present their solutions to a panel of judges on November 15. The winning team will be announced at the Water Summit on Feb. 25 and the competition will be featured on the PBS show Curiosity Quest.
