Award Program to Honor 'Water Champions'

New in 2009-2010, the WWMD Awards Program will recognize WWMD participants for outstanding achievement in boosting awareness of water quality issues. The program features two types of awards.

The Water Champion: Making a Difference award recognizes superior levels of relevance, educational effort, support, and innovation in the promotion of water quality (via involvement in World Water Monitoring Day). Awardees will be chosen by a subcommittee of the World Water Monitoring Day regional panel of judges. Applications are now being accepted.

The WWMD Superlatives will be awarded based upon data submitted to the WWMD database.

New Partner Connects 'Doers' with Donors

WWMD has partnered with Akvo, an organization that helps donors and doers reach out to fund thousands of water projects. This is a fantastic resource to use if you are looking to acquire test kits for your monitoring activities. By creating your own project page, you can encourage donors to financially support your WWMD efforts. Akvo's simple reporting makes it easy to share short text updates, images, and film clips, creating a positive feedback loop.

Please check out Akvo online and contact Frances Lucraft for more information on how to set up your own WWMD project page.
