Stockholm Junior Water Prize

Each year, thousands of young people (age 15-20) enter SJWP national competitions and design water-related projects of environmental, scientific, social or technological significance. Over 100,000 young innovators participate each year, from some 30 countries.

National finalists travel are invited to Stockholm to represent their country at the international final during the world’s leading annual event on water - World Water Week. The overall winner receives a USD 15,000 award and a blue crystal prize sculpture.

H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden is the Patron of the Prize. It is hosted by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), and delivered by independent national organizers, with support from SIWI and in accordance with its prize guidelines.
