UK Junior Water Prize

CIWEM is on the lookout for our next UK Junior Water Prize winner to represent the UK at the Stockholm Junior Water Prize during World Water Week in Sweden in August 2021. The Stockholm prize is one of the most lucrative and prestigious awards open to young scientists – offering global recognition and a US$15,000 prize.

The deadline has now been moved to 28th May 2021

For the competition, students need to identify an issue and undertake some research and experiments to find a practical and innovative solution. A write up of this work can then be entered into the UKJWP. The UKJWP is run by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) in partnership with the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), who run the international round of the competition called the Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP).

Students’ written UKJWP entries are assessed by a specialist panel, with the finalists being invited to a judging day at The Big Bang Fair 2021. The UKJWP winner receives an expenses-paid trip to Stockholm during World Water Week, where they get to represent the UK in the SJWP!

NOTE: due to COVID-19, the above events in 2021 will be held digitally
