The UK Junior Water Prize is aimed at solving environmental challenges with a link to water, which we know is super important for our future!
For the competition, you 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.
You are eligible to take part if:
- You are going to be between 15 and 20 years of age for World Water Week in August 2020
- You haven’t started University yet
- You started your project whilst you were at school
- Your school or college is in the UK.
You can take part on your own or in a pair, as long as both partners meet the eligibility criteria above. School assignments qualify for entry, but you need to specify your role in the project.
To be in with a chance of winning, submit your entry and a completed application form to Vicky Harris, CIWEM Publications Manager, on firstname.lastname@example.org with “UK Junior Water Prize” in the subject line.
This years deadline is 5pm on Monday 3rd February 2020.
Shortlisted projects will be judged on Friday 13th March 2020 in Birmingham.
