ASABE Student Competitions
Fountain Wars Student Design Competition:  This competition is a hands-on, real-time student design competition that takes place at the Society's annual international meeting. Collegiate teams design and model their fountains onsite, and build and test their actual entries under time pressure. 

Open Format – Gunlogson Environmental Design Competition:  The purpose of the competition is to encourage undergraduate students to participate in the design of a relevant engineering project and to provide an arena of professional competition for environmentally and biologically related design projects. This competition focuses on environmentally and biologically related projects. The competition consists of two parts: (1) Submission of a design report to be judged by an expert panel, and (2) Participation by the three teams earning the highest report scores in a presentation competition at the ASABE Annual International Meeting. Awards will be based on the overall score, which is a composite of project, written, and oral scores.
