This competition is aimed at solving environmental challenges with a link to water, which we know is super important for our future! For the competition, students 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. The UKJWP is run by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) in partnership with the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), who run the international round of the competition called the Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP). Students’ written UKJWP entries are assessed by a specialist panel, with the finalists being invited to a judging day at The Big Bang Fair in 2021. The UKJWP winner receives an expenses paid trip to Stockholm during World Water Week, where they get to represent the UK in the SJWP!
