SWANA's Young Professional's Present:

The International Solid Waste Design Competition (SWDC) at
WASTECON 2017 co-located with
ISWA's World Congress in Baltimore, MD

(September 25 - 27, 2017)

The 3rd annual International Solid Waste Design Competition (SWDC) is now accepting applications and we need your help to spread the word!

SWANA's International Solid Waste Design Competition (SWDC) is a student team competition to solve a "real world" problem faced by solid waste professionals. The competition aims at providing design experience for students interested in pursuing an education and/or career in solid waste management. The 2016 competition drew a sizable audience during WASTECON(r) as attendees watched the LIVE presentations. University of Texas at Arlington received the first place prize followed by Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico in second and Florida State University & Florida A&M University in third.

To make next year's competition even more exciting, we need your assistance in spreading the word to university programs and students who qualify to compete in the next competition at WASTECON(r) 2017 co-located with the International Solid Waste Association's World Congress in Baltimore, MD.

Do you know a student or university program (perhaps from your alma mater) who might want to compete in next year's competition?

If so, please encourage them to fill out the application<http://SWANA.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT01OTkwODk2JnA9MSZ1PTEwMDkzMTIyNjImbGk9Mzg1NDEwNTY/index.html> by November 18, 2016 and to visit the WASTECON 2017 Student Design<http://SWANA.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT01OTkwODk2JnA9MSZ1PTEwMDkzMTIyNjImbGk9Mzg1NDEwNTc/index.html> page for more details. We also look forward to seeing you there!

Thank you,

SWDC Steering Committee
Nathan Mayer and Karam Singh

Subject: SWANA's 2017 Solid Waste Student Design Competition

My name is Nathan Mayer and I sit on the Solid Waste Association of North America's (SWANA) Young Professionals (YP) steering committee and organize the Solid Waste Student Design Competition. Last year was our 2nd annual competition and it was a great turnout with the University of Texas at Arlington taking first place. You can find more information at https://swana.org/Membership/MembershipInformation/YoungProfessionals/swdc

We are in the process of organizing the problem statement for WasteCon 2017, which will be held September 25-27, 2017 in Baltimore, MD, and will be co-located with the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) World Congress. The next project will be on the cost/benefit of recycling. The enrollment and project statement should be on our website by mid October 2016. Enrollment will be open through October 2016 and close on 11/11/16. We are rolling the project out much earlier this year to target team enrollment in the Fall semester and provide the student teams with the Spring and Summer semesters to complete the project.

Please let me know if you have a group of students interested in forming a design team and participating in the competition. Participating students will be provided free conference registrations and a 1 year SWANA membership. There will also be prize money awarded to the first, second, and third place teams.

Thank you,
