The Stockholm Jr. Water Prize Committee is looking for volunteers to attend the Alaska State Science and Engineering Fair in Anchorage and/or to be judges for t...he Alaska Stockholm Jr. Water Prize (SJWP).
The Alaska State Science & Engineering Fair is to be held March 23rd through 25th in Anchorage and is an opportunity for students in grades K through 12 to submit science, engineering, computer science, or mathematics projects for an opportunity to win prizes and even to participate in the International Science and Engineering Fair. Volunteers who are willing to attend the Alaska State Science and Engineering Fair would be tasked to interact with students who’s fair entries are water related and telling those students about the SJWP. These students can enter their project for consideration to the Stockholm contest. This is also an opportunity to talk to students who may not yet meet the age requirement for the SJWP, but who could enter in the future. The purpose of this effort is to promote the SJWP.
The U.S. Stockholm Junior Water Prize is awarded to a student in grade 9 through 12 for an outstanding science project aimed at enhancing the quality of life through the improvement of water quality, water resource management, or water and watershed treatment. Projects can explore water issues on a local, regional, national, or global level using a research-oriented approach. The Alaska Science & Engineering Fair promotes the SJWP and encourages students with applicable projects to also submit their project, as a paper, to the State SJWP Competition. The State SJWP Committee is looking for individuals willing to judge the papers submitted to the State SJWP Competition. All papers submitted need to be reviewed and scored before the AWWMA Annual Conference in May. All papers would be submitted by April 15th and judges would receive the entries by the 17th.
