K-State placed second in the 2010 G.B. Gunlogson Student Environmental Design Competition - Fountain Wars Contest. The K-State team competed against teams from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Texas A&M, University of Florida, Oklahoma State and Iowa State.
Each team prepares a fountain design to meet aesthetics display and technical task requirements. At the contest site, each team is provided with a 1000-L reservoir, up to 30 m of various sizes PVC pipe, and access to 14-amp, 120-volt AC electrical service to power their pump systems. The teams arrive at competition with a fountain design, pump systems, PVC couplers, fittings, valves, and nozzles. After a presentation of their design, teams are given 2 hours to construct their fountain. Upon completion, each fountain was tested for its ability to perform the two technical tasks and the aesthetic display. Awards are based on separate scores of the written design, oral presentation, construction, technical tests, and aesthetics.
K-State’s 2010 Fountain Wars Design Team competition members were Lorinda Bejot (Dodge City), Kelly Borgen (Ensign), Katie Handley (Onaga), Levi Sutton (Manhattan), Justine Sullivan (Lakin) and Brent Ware (Shawnee Mission). Other team members are: Allie Archer (McPherson), Kari Friedrichs (Marysville), Erin Mason (Greenfield, MO), Breanna Stout (Garden City), Ginger Pugh (Mayetta).
