The Water Resources Research Center's annual writing contest began in 2008, commemorating Joe Gelt, WRRC's longtime editor. Undergraduate students at The University of Arizona, Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University were invited to submit magazine style feature articles on a water related topic chosen from a list of six specified categories. The winning articles are published in the Arizona Water Resource and the grand prize winner receives $100.
This contest is a unique opportunity for student writers to see their work published. The Arizona Water Resource reaches a wide audience that includes water professionals and policy makers in addition to the interested public.
