Iowa Water Center Spirit of the Water Essay Contest now open!

Iowa Water Center Spirit of the Water Essay Contest now open!

Without water, there would be no life. Water serves as a medium in which we can grow healthy plants, innovate in industry, and play in the outdoors. From supporting our natural habitats to running through our kitchen faucets, it allows us to flourish as a community of living beings.

It not only sustains us, but inspires us.

The Iowa Water Center would like to invite students from around the state to participate in the 2017 Iowa Water Center Spirit of the Water Essay Contest and share with us how water inspires them.

  • Students enrolled in 2 and 4-year degree universities and colleges in Iowa are eligible for the undergraduate competition.
