A short documentary showing how Missouri S&T students helped a village in Bolivia last summer won the best short-form video award from Engineers Without Borders USA.

The 6-minute film documents how students worked to bring clean water to Tacachia, a tiny, remote community in Bolivia located in a steep valley south of La Paz, the nation’s capital. The students are members of S&T’s EWB chapter.

The S&T students visited Tacachia last July and August to install a new water distribution system. Tom Shipley, manager of video productions for Missouri S&T, traveled along with the team to record their work on film. Shipley also produced the film, titled “Engineers Without Borders: Tacachia,” which is available on the university’s YouTube site, www.youtube.com/MissouriSandT.
