Poster Competition

Fresh Ideas Poster Contest for Young Professionals

What is Fresh Ideas?

The Fresh Ideas Poster Contest is a national poster competition organized by the American Water Works Association (AWWA). It is designed to encourage young professionals (YP) and students to participate at conferences held by individual AWWA sections as well as the annual AWWA conference.

Each AWWA section holds its own competition at its section conference to determine the winner. The Western Canada Section winner for the poster competition will be determined at the WCW Annual Conference and will receive funding to attend the next year’s Fresh Ideas Poster Contest at ACE to present their paper.

Poster Session

A panel of experts will judge the posters on Thursday from 8:00 am to 9:30 am.  Presenters will be required to stay in attendance from 9:30 am to 11:30 am to discuss their posters with conference delegates.
