Students Ana Latorre and Frida Hellström won the Swedish national contest to the 2014 Stockholm Junior Water Prize international final. The national contest took place at Tekniska Museet in Stockholm and was part as a category within a greater competition organised by Förbundet Unga Forskare (FUF).
The winning study was carried out mainly under water and examined how physical environmental conditions such as wind, waves and ground hardness affect marine eelgrass. The jury praised the project for its contribution to strengthen the biodiversity of the coast lines in Sweden.
This summer, the Swedish students will compete against young people from over 30 countries across the globe in the international final of Stockholm Junior Water Prize that takes place during World Water Week in Stockholm. The award ceremony will be held on September 3 at Grand Hôtel in the heart of Stockholm.
