2017-2018 AEESP/EESF Student Video Competition

AEESP's Membership and Demographics Committee hosted the third annual AEESP/EESF Student Video Competition. The theme of this year's Competition was "The Value of Water."

Each year, the Student Video Competition seeks to highlight environmental engineering and science to increase awareness about the field and encourage young people to learn more about stewardship of water, land, air, mineral, and energy resources. The Competition was open to undergraduate and graduate students studying environmental engineering and science worldwide.

Twelve teams from around the country submitted videos on a diverse set of topics. Judging was conducted by a panel of environmental engineering and science faculty, as well as practicing engineers. Videos were evaluated based on originality and creativity, content accuracy, and potential to motivate middle and high school students to pursue a career in environmental engineering and science.

The top three teams won prizes of $1,000, $750, and $500. Respectively, they were:

  1. "UIUC Water Warriors," University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
  2. "Water Access Through Education and Renewable Energy (WaterE) ," Arizona State University
  3. "The Water Conservers," University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

AEESP will distribute the prize awards to the winning teams at our Annual AEESP Awards Ceremony on Monday, October 1st at WEFTEC in New Orleans.

The Membership and Demographics Committee would like to congratulate this year's Competition winners and thank all the teams who participated! We hope that everyone enjoys these videos and we encourage you to share them widely to promote the general public's understanding of environmental engineering and science. They have also been uploaded to AEESP's YouTube Page.
