The Stockholm Junior Water Prize, Bangladesh (SJWPBD) is a national competition where the winning team represents Bangladesh at the Stockholm Junior Water Prize in Sweden.
The international Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) contest is held during the World Water Week in Stockholm each August and gathers the world’s brightest young minds to create real solutions for the global water crisis. Thousands of participants from more than 30 countries compete for a spot in the international finals. Here, finalists get to meet other water innovators, make lasting connections and are inspired to solve global water problems. The goal of the competition is to inspire young people to engage in water and environmental issues.
The winner at SJWPBD is deliberated by a panel of adjudicators supplied by House of Volunteers Foundation, Bangladesh (HoV Bangladesh), which was nominated by Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) as the national organizer of SJWP for Bangladesh.
WaterAid Bangladesh has joined SJWP Bangladesh National Competition as Co-organizer. From SJWPBD 2018, Gazi TV becomes the TV media partner and Radio Foorti becomes the Radio partner in order to scale up the competition to the mass people.
