Midwest Student Design Competition

On behalf of the Indiana Water Environment Association (IWEA) and the Central States Water Environment Association (CSWEA) we would like to introduce you to a few student opportunities offered through the 5th Annual Midwest Student Design Competition (MSDC). This year, the competition will be held on Monday, April 8, 2024 in Madison, Wisconsin at the Monona Terrace Convention Center. This is a unique opportunity for students at the college level to demonstrate their ability to evaluate alternatives, develop a comprehensive design, and present a solution that meets the requirements of a socially relevant problem statement in the water and wastewater fields.

Mentor Program

It’s time to inspire and grow. The IWEA and INAWWA Young Professionals (YP) Committee has created a Mentor Program to help bridge the gap between young and seasoned professionals and create a dialogue that will propel the young professional forward in their career. A young professional in any industry is inundated with multiple obstacles, whether there are deciding to obtain further licensing, a graduate degree, or switch careers entirely, there are multiple decisions and obstacles a young professional must navigate as they begin their career. We want our young professionals to fall in love with the water industry and learn water is worth fighting for! This is where the pairing of young and seasoned professionals will cultivate a unique relationship that will help the young professional navigate the water industry and hopefully stay in the industry.
