Xylem Global Student Innovation Challenge

Join us in solving water challenges to expand water access and resilience for all.

Water is essential to life. It permeates every aspect of our daily existence, from morning routines to nighttime rituals. Challenges such as climate change, pollution, and aging infrastructure continue to jeopardize our water resources and security.

Join us in addressing these water challenges to expand access and fortify resilience for everyone. By participating in this year's virtual hackathon, you'll have the chance to:

  • Over 8 weeks, solve one of the three challenge statements in teams of up to 5 students
  • Compete from a $20,000 USD prize pool awarded for projects in 2 tracks – high school & university tracks and receive a certificate for submitting a project
  • Receive mentorship & participate in educational webinars with water industry experts 
  • Get access to the Xylem Water Master Class, a series of engaging video classes, to learn a range of important water topics from water sustainability to design thinking

We believe in the potential of every individual to make a meaningful impact in addressing water challenges. That’s why this year, we are offering a $25 gift card to the first 100 qualified project submissions.

This global virtual hackathon is open to students between the ages of 13 and 25. Innovators of all experience levels are encouraged to join. Check out the website to learn more about the challenges and register!
