People's Choice Award

Since 2020, the annual Stockholm Junior Water Prize is complemented by an award from the audience, so you can vote for your favourite project.

If a jury of leading water experts assess all contributions and select the winning team for the Stockholm Junior Water Prize, anyone can now check out the competing projects of the year and vote for their favourite. The project that received the most votes from the public will receive the People’s Choice Award.

The Award is announced in August during World Water Week along the Stockholm Water Prize.
