Swiss Junior Water Prize

The Swiss Junior Water Prize (Swiss-JWP) is awarded to young talented students between 15 and 20 years old who have conducted excellent school projects focused on water or sanitation. The award aims to incentivise young students to grow an interest in water and sustainability issues, and to create interaction opportunities between promising young talents and professionals in the Swiss water sector.

The winners of the Swiss-JWP represent Switzerland in the Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP), held every year during the Stockholm World Water Week. The event allows the Swiss finalists to share their passion for water with students from more than 30 countries. 

The Swiss-JWP is hosted by the  Swiss Water Partnership and coordinated by the Swiss Toilet Organisation. The prize is awarded within the frame of Swiss Youth in Science.
