Timeline - TWR


Whether your Enactus team is exploring an early stage idea or scaling a successful social enterprise--or anywhere in between--we want to know how you are taking entrepreneurial action to address water and/or sanitation challenges. By accepting the call to action, you’ll join a global community of Enactus students, Faculty Advisors and business leaders who believe we can tackle the global water and sanitation crisis.

The Water Race is open to all registered students on Enactus teams working on water and/or sanitation projects that align with the Enactus Judging Criterion.

Please visit enactus.org/where-we-work/ to see the 36 countries where Enactus currently operates.

Not part of Enactus? Contact international@enactus.org to learn how you can join.

To enter the Race, create a team and submit an Action Entry between 22 March - 30 April 2017.

Then, share your project through a dynamic, 77-second video before 1 June 2017 to be eligible for Progress Rewards. Check out the 77-Second Video Guidelines for details.

Take Action


Between 1 May and 1 June 2017, participating Race teams will submit Progress Reports to compete for The Water Race Progress Rewards. We want to know how your project is delivering measurable progress towards addressing water and/or sanitation challenges. Progress Reports will be evaluated by water and/or sanitation experts and The Water Race sponsors to determine the strongest projects. Check out The Water Race Challenge Page for a complete listing of Progress Rewards.

Don’t forget to submit your 77-Second Video before 1 June 2017 to be eligible for Progress Rewards!

Report Progress


The top four Race teams will compete for scaling funding at the The Water Race Impact Competition, which will take place at the Enactus World Cup 2017 in London, 26-28 September.

Also during Enactus World Cup, a special collaboration session for World Races will be hosted for select Enactus students, Faculty Advisors and business leaders to discuss shared insights, challenges and positive impact.
