On World Water Day, March 22, the Water Environment Federation (Alexandria, Va.) and International Water Association (London) announced the winners of the fourth annual World Water Monitoring Challenge™ (WWMC) Water Champion Awards. World Water Day also marked the beginning of the 2013 monitoring year, which ends Dec. 31.

The award program, which began in 2009, recognizes WWMC participants for outstanding achievements in increasing awareness of water quality issues. A subcommittee of the WWMC regional panel of judges chose WWMC Water Champions to recognize superior levels of relevance, educational efforts, support, and innovation promoting water quality through the program. The award recipients named below will receive a commemorative plaque and WWMC materials, such as water monitoring equipment, resources, or promotion materials, up to a value of $500:
