Award Description

The Stockholm Junior Water Prize(SJWP) is the most prestigious international youth award for a high school water science research project. Its purpose is to increase students’ interest in water-related issues and research, and to sensitize them – as future leaders – to global water challenges. Junior High and High School students with water related science fair projects who enter state or regional science are eligible to compete. State winners can progress to the national competition. CSWEA will support one candidate from state or regional science fair competitions for each state section. The support includes airfare for the competitor and a companion to the national competition. Additional expenses at the national competition are covered by WEF.


Policy and Procedure

1.     One of the duties of The Committee on Public Education is to plan and coordinate activities for Stockholm Jr. Water Prize (SJWP). The Public Education committee shall identify a SJWP finalist from the Wisconsin and Minnesota Sections to compete in the National SJWP competition sponsored by WEF.  The Sections shall be responsible for all costs associated with the State SJWP events and any reimbursement for the competitors and their teacher or chaperone to attend the state event or any CSWEA events, such as the Annual Meeting.  The Association shall provide complimentary registrations for SJWP students, their teacher and parents to attend CSWEA events, such as the Annual Meeting.

2.     The Association shall determine through the adoption of its annual fiscal budget the maximum reimbursement for travel expenses to be paid to the student and the student’s teacher or chaperone from each section. Any travel expenses that exceed the Associations budgeted amount will be the responsibility of the Section.

3.     Should the travel arrangement services of WEF be used for student and teachers travel to the national event, the Association shall pay the invoiced amount and in turn invoice the Sections for any amount that exceeds the budgeted amount.

4.     CSWEA recognizes that IWEA provides the student from Illinois to attend the national event and therefore no IL Section student participation is solicited.
