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 2016 Western Canada Water Annual Conference held in Calgary, Alberta.

Poster Session

A panel of experts judges the posters on Thursday, October 6, 2016 from 8:00am to 9:30 am.  Presenters will be required to stay in attendance, during display from 9:30 to 11:30, to have one-on-one conversations with conference delegates. The contest winner will be awarded at the WCS-AWWA Breakfast on Friday, October 7, 2016.
