The Undergraduate Water Prize encourages and rewards students for excellence in the field of water studies and research, and provides a forum for students to display their academic excellence and research findings to future employees, clients and the water industry.
Open to students enrolled or recently graduated (within last twelve months) in a university or tertiary institute within Australia whose final year project is on a water industry related topic.
Please check whether your local branch offers the Undergraduate Water Prize. Where offered, nominations must be entered into the branch awards. Branch winners will be automatically nominated for the national award.
Where no relevant branch awards are offered, nominations can be submitted directly to the AWA National Office.
A panel of three industry experts will select a national winner based on both the submitted paper and presentation at the Ozwater Conference.
National finalists will be judged on both the paper they submit and an oral presentation which will be given within a dedicated Ozwater conference stream. Each component (paper and presentation) will be worth 50% of your score.
Please note that as 50% of your score is based on your presentation, you must be available to attend and present to remain eligible for the national prize. Ozwater’15 will be held in Adelaide between 12-14 May 2015.
1st place: 3 years membership to YWP Network.
Winners from each Branch will be provided with flights, accommodation and registration to Ozwater where they will present their papers as part of the conference program. The national winner’s paper will be published on AWA’s website and in AWA’s Water Journal.
