James Glover wins CIWEM's Graduate Student prize.

Congratulations to James Glover, Graduate Hydrogeologist, MM Environment, Cambridge. He has won first prize in the CIWEM East Anglia Branches Graduate paper competition for his paper on the Soil Moisture Models MOSES and MORECS. He entered the competition as part of his MSc Studies in Hydrogeology at the University of Newcastle. James now goes through to the overall CIWEM Young Members' Award.

James faced some stiff competition from other graduates in the region, and the judges commented that "they were very impressed with all the entries". Apart from the glory of winning the prize, James also received £300 and a crystal decanter.

The prize giving happened at CIWEM's AGM on May 16th at Wyboston Lakes, where a display of entrants' posters, put together to accompany their papers, were on display. Unfortunately James couldn't receive his prize in person - he was out of the country working hard on a water resources project in China.

About the Award:

The CIWEM 2007 Student/graduate prize is a competition sponsored by the East Anglian Branch of the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) to recognise particular achievement in a research project undertaken by a student as part of a taught degree course (Batchelor's or Master's). The project will be related to water and/or environmental issues, and the candidate must have studied or now be based in the East Anglian Region.

The Branch annually awards a prize of £300 for the best written paper and presentation. The Branch winner is put forward to the overall CIWEM Young Members' Award.

Entry to the competition is by the submission of a brief synopsis followed by a written paper. The short listed papers are subsequently presented to a panel of judges.

Information on the next stage:

The CIWEM Young Members’ Award recognises the outstanding contribution to environmental understanding made by a young member of CIWEM. Winners of CIWEM Branch and Group Young Members’ Competitions are eligible for nomination for the overall CIWEM Young Members’ Award.
