The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) is accepting entries for the U.S. Stockholm Junior Water Prize. The competition brings high school students who have conducted water research projects together for the chance to earn a trip to the international SJWP competition in Stockholm.
Any high school student in grades 9 through 12, who has reached the age of 15 by Aug. 1, can enter his or her research by April 15. These projects should follow scientifically accepted methodologies and focus on improving water quality, water resource management, or water and wastewater treatment.
The competition, sponsored by Xylem Inc. (Rye Brook, N.Y.), will be held June 16−17 at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. For more information, contact WEF staff member Stevi Hunt-Cottrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
