Junior Water Prize


Australian Junior Water Prize for high school students

Nominations for the 2009 Australian SJWP close on 8 December 2008.


The Australian Junior Water Prize (AJWP) competition is Australia's national student water science competition. The winner of the AJWP will represent Australia at the international Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP), held in Sweden during World Water Week.

In Australia, entries are sought nationally from senior high school science students (usually in year nine or ten) at the beginning of the school year. Up to three finalists are selected to compete for the national prize and of these the national winner is selected to represent Australia in the international competition.  The AJWP winner receives a cash prize, a trophy, and an expense paid trip to Stockholm, Sweden to compete in the international SJWP. The AJWP winner's school will receive an education grant to enhance water science education and research in the classroom and a trophy for the school.

Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP)

The international Stockholm Junior Water Prize competition brings together the world’s brightest young scientists to encourage their continued interest in water and the environment. Each year, thousands of participants in over 30 countries join national competitions for the chance to represent their nation at the international final held during the World Water Week in Stockholm. During their time in Stockholm, winners of the national competitions receive an opportunity to meet and learn from the present leaders of the global water community and make life-long friendships with international compatriots who share a passion for water and science.

The national and international competitions are open to young people between the age of 15 and 20 who have conducted water-related projects focusing on local, regional, national or global topics of environmental, scientific, social or technological importance. The international prize winner receives a USD 5,000 award and a crystal sculpture. As a result of the competitions, thousands of young people around the world become interested in water.

H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is the Patron of the Stockholm Junior Water Prize.

Science Initiatives 2007

One of Northern Sydney Region’s major priorities for 2007 was the improvement of the teaching and learning of Science. This focus came out of a number of planning sessions, where there were strong regional representations from the P&C, principals, teachers, students and community members, last year. To help guide this important priority, the Region will be implementing a Regional Science Strategy this year.
