IWSH Scholarship Essay Competition

"IAPMO formed its new foundation — the International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation (IWSH) — to help provide safe access to clean water and sanitation systems. How would you promote the IWSH projects and what slogan would you use do to so?"

The International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation (IWSH), a bridge for the international water, sanitation and hygiene community, with specific focus of the role of the Plumbing Industry in community collaborations and educational exchange, will take over sponsorship of the scholarship essay competition previously operated by IAPMO. As in past competitions, IWSH will award scholarships to three young people with an interest in how the plumbing and mechanical industry can create and promote positive change across the globe.

Participants in this year’s contest will submit essays expressing their thoughts on “IAPMO formed its new foundation — the International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation (IWSH) — to help provide safe access to clean water and sanitation systems. How would you promote the IWSH projects and what slogan would you use to do so?”

IWSH has opened the competition to any student enrolled in a high school, community college, trade school, four-year accredited college or university or working in an apprentice program.

Submitted essays must be the completely original work of the submitter and must be no fewer than 800 words nor greater than 1,600 words. The essay entry deadline is May 1, 2017, via e-mail, fax or mail to IAPMO World Headquarters. The winning essay will be announced next September at the 2017 IAPMO Education and Business Conference in Anchorage, Alaska. The author of the essay awarded first prize will receive a $1,000 scholarship and a one-year paid membership to IAPMO. Second-place winner will receive a $750 scholarship and the third-place winner will receive a $500 scholarship. All winning essays will also be published in Official, IAPMO's membership magazine, and on the IAPMO website.
