American Water Resources Association, Florida Section Student Research Poster Contest - Call For Abstracts

Florida Gulf Coast University will be the site of the 24th Annual Southwest Florida Water Resources Conference. This conference is hosted in collaboration by eight professional societies and public interest groups, as the premier event in water resources technical information in southwest Florida. The conference brings together researchers, managers, agency staff, consultants, and other interested parties to discuss ongoing scientific research and innovative projects, to share ideas, and to increase awareness of the issues of water supply, water use efficiency, waterbody protection, watershed health, and environmental sustainability facing Florida today.

This student research poster contest is open to all Florida students and students conducting research in Florida. We seek abstracts in any of a wide range of topics pertaining to the field of water resources.

Simply having more people allows us to expose the kids to more hands-on activities. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Brittany Pace at
