Xylem Global Student Innovation Challenge 2023!

Students aged 13 to 25 were invited to create projects that tackle one of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges: water. This 8-week virtual #hackathon offered access to informative webinars and mentoring by leading water experts to develop projects addressing issues such as the water impact of Green Hydrogen production, the Water-Energy-Emissions nexus in the built environment, waterways pollution. Participants also had the opportunity to develop water awareness content to further drive engagement on the ‘Water Heroes Hub’ platform.

Students of all experience levels are encouraged to participate!

Students from all expertise levels competed for 8 cash prizes from the $20,000 prize pool, including $5,000 grand prizes for the top secondary (high school) and tertiary (university) projects.
