CANADIAN STOCKHOLM JUNIOR WATER PRIZE
Attention High School students in Atlantic Canada! The International Stockholm Junior Water Prize contest, which is held during the World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden each August, aims to encourage young people's interest in issues concerning water and the environment. The award is given annually for an outstanding water project by a young person or a small group of young people. With this, the competition seeks to inspire young people to a continued engagement for water and the environment.
The Canadian participant for the contest is selected through the Canada Wide Science Fair by a panel of judges supplied by the Canadian Water Environment Federation Member Associations. The winner of the Canadian Stockholm Junior Water Prize (CSJWP) contest competes at the International Contest. More information on the CSJWP competition can be found at:
