The U.S. Stockholm Junior Water Prize competition is the world’s most prestigious water-science competition for high school students. It is open to all high school students, ages 15-20 and in grades 9-12, who have water-science research projects. Projects may be done individually, or by a team of up to three students. Any student who meets the above criteria may enter, to include public high schools, private schools, homeschools, and independent projects not associated with a school.
State winners will be announced the first week of May 2014, and will be awarded an all-expense paid trip to compete at the national competition, June 13-14, in Herndon, VA.
Any high school student (ages 15-20 in grades 9-12) with a water-related science project is eligible to participate in the Stockholm Junior Water Prize competition. Teams of up to three students may enter.
Projects should focus on local, regional, national, or global issues. It is essential that all projects use a research-oriented approach, which means they must use scientifically accepted methodologies for experimentation, monitoring, and reporting, including statistical analysis.
