The Australian Stockholm Junior Water Prize (ASJWP) is an annual water science competition for high school students focusing on projects aimed at improving the quality of life through improvement of water quality, water resources management, water protection and water and wastewater
treatment. This award aims to increase interest in water-related issues and research, and to raise awareness and knowledge of global water challenges.
Students are invited to undertake a water-related research project focusing on solving community water problems. The scope of the project may be on a local, regional, national or global topic but must have the potential to improve quality of life and/or the environment.
All projects must use a research-oriented approach, which means that they must use scientifically accepted methodologies for experimentation, monitoring and reporting results, including statistical analyses. Research should be written up into a 20-page (maximum) scientific paper and submitted to the Australian Water Association.
Projects in the National ASJWP and the Internationals Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) are judged according to the following criteria:
A judging panel to assess nominations for the ASJWP is established by AWA National Office. It consists of between six and nine members of the water industry, including the Chair, generally an AWA Program Manager.
The ASJWP finalists will present their project to a judging panel at Ozwater'14 in Brisbane on 29 April - 2 May 2014.
The winner of the ASJWP will then compete internationally in Stockholm at the SJWP. To view the 2012 Judging ceremony in Stockholm please click here.
