The nomination period for the first-ever Manila Water Foundation Prize for Engineering Excellence has been moved from the prior announced July 15 to August 15, 2015 in response to requests made by various academic institutions, professional associations, and companies.

Said prize, which is in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), is a nationwide search for five exemplary engineers who have developed and implemented projects that champion water, sanitation, environment and sustainability for marginalized communities.
