Stockholm Junior Water Prize

Water Nobel


Over 30 countries worldwide participate in the Stockholm Junior Water Prize. This competition, which began in 1997, has become a meeting point for young students from all over the planet on the challenges of water and sustainability.

The National Competition, organized by the School of Water with the sponsorship of the Aquae Foundation, offers all secondary, higher secondary and vocational training centres of Spain the possibility of presenting research projects on the water-quality of life nexus.

After the National Competition final, the Spanish representative goes to Stockholm, where the International Final is held, within the framework of World Water Week.


What does it mean to reach the international final?

The finalists from the participating countries are invited to Stockholm for five days, where they participate in World Water Week, with a range of activities which offer them the unique opportunity to present and discuss their projects with a wide variety of conference attendees, including researchers, politicians and the media.

Each of the finalists is interviewed by a jury of international experts, who decide on the winning project which is announced during the final awards ceremony.

The Stockholm Junior Water Prize finalists are also invited to join WaterTank. Through this network, the finalists can connect and collaborate with each other and with expert mentors and advisers from leading organizations such as Xylem Inc., Raincoat Foundation and SIWI. The aim is to help these brilliant minds to develop their projects, and to keep them committed to the water sector.
