Beginning in 1997, the award is given annually for an outstanding water project by a young person or a small group of young people at a ceremony held during the World Water Week in Stockholm. The international Stockholm Junior Prize winner receives a USD 5,000 scholarship and a blue crystal sculpture in the shape of a water droplet.
The finalists at the international Stockholm Junior Water Prize are the winners of their national contests. The national and international competitions are open to pre-university young people ages 15–20 who have conducted water-related projects on topics on environmental, scientific, social, or technological importance. The national competitions have helped students around the world become active in water issues.
