The Australian Stockholm Junior Water Prize is an annual water science competition open to all Australian school students aged between 15 and 20 years of age.

The competition challenges young people to think big and take a fresh look at local and global water problems, it encourages students to delve into all areas of water including:

  • Improving water quality
  • Managing water resources
  • Water protection
  • Water sanitation
  • Water and wastewater treatment


The winner of the Australian Stockholm Junior Water Prize will go on to compete internationally for the Stockholm Junior Water Prize.

Students will travel to Stockholm during World Water Week in August 2022 to participate in the week-long cultural exchange program with national winners from over 30 other nations.

The Prize is awarded at Ozwater in May each year and is proudly supported by @xylemanz.
