Xylem Water Prize

Xylem Water Prize

As official sponsor of the International Junior Science Olympiad which will be hosted in the Netherlands this year, Xylem is providing an additional opportunity to participating students to show their talent and creativity in mastering today’s water challenges. Xylem Water Prize is a separate recognition from the International Junior Science Olympiad. The competition for the Xylem Water Prize is to create a 1 to 3 minute video in which students clearly state their answer to the question “How do you solve water?”.
