Help us make a splash at WEFTEC!
The Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC) is recognized as the world’s largest annual water quality conference. As members of the Association of Water and Environment (AWE) - the Kansas student chapter of WEF and American Water Works Association (AWWA) - we have been working on a wastewater design project to submit for the 2018 WEFTEC Student Design Competition. We had the privilege of being the first team EVER from the state of Kansas to present our design last year, and we would like to continue the tradition. As such, the AWE Design Team is asking for your help so that we may attend and compete this year.
As environmental engineering students, participating in the WEFTEC Student Design Competition provides an opportunity to not only hone our technical and design skills, but also develop our professional writing and presentation skills. Proficiency in these areas is essential for our continued career success. In addition to student events, WEFTEC offers so much more in workshops, technical sessions, and the EXPO floor. Networking is also an important aspect of the conference experience in which students can make connections with world leaders in the wastewater field. This will prepare our team as we transition from academics to industry. For more information on WEFTEC and all it has to offer, please visit www.weftec.org.
Travelling to WEFTEC can be costly, so we are asking for your support. This will go toward travelling expenses for five students on the 2018 KU Design Team. Thank you for tapping into your love of water and donating a few drops to help us navigate our way to New Orleans!
