Water in Arizona has been making news lately, but for students Xin Guan and Davian Peterson, it’s always been top of mind and they recently captured top honors in the 2021 CAP Award for Water Research for their work. The Award recognizes excellence in graduate or undergraduate student research addressing water issues facing the lower basin states (Arizona, California and Nevada).
CAP offers the Award for Water Research annually to encourage and support water research in Arizona colleges and universities and to raise public awareness of water issues impacting central and southern Arizona and the Colorado River. Judging is conducted in a blind process by representatives of CAP’s popularly elected Board of Directors, CAP customers and management, and other members of the water community. The first place winner received $1,000 and second place winner received $500.
Papers for the 2022 CAP Award for Water Research can be submitted any time before June 1, 2022.
