The Water Management and Hydrological Science (WMHS) program at Texas A&M University is hosting Water Daze, a student poster competition and water lecture, April 3 on the Texas A&M campus.
The poster competition, open to any Texas A&M graduate or undergraduate student, will be in the Rudder Tower Exhibit Hall from 9 a.m. to noon, with judging at 10 a.m.
Dr. Joan B. Rose, a Michigan State University professor and an international expert in water microbiology, water quality and public health safety, will lecture on “Linking Animal and Human Pollution Sources to the Landscape” at 2:30 p.m. in the Koldus Building, room 110 (read more about the lecture here).
Dr. Prakash Khedun, the WMHS program coordinator, said any Texas A&M graduate and undergraduate student is encouraged to prepare a poster addressing a water issue or problem with suggested solutions. Texas A&M student organizations doing outreach about water issues can also submit posters to highlight their activities, he said.
A team of faculty and other water professionals will judge the posters. First, second and third place winners will receive a monetary prize. Poster winners will be announced during the water lecture.
The poster submission deadline is March 28. More information on poster submission guidelines and registration is available at twri.tamu.edu/water-daze/register.
The event is sponsored by the Water Management and Hydrological Science program, the Texas Water Resources Institute, the Texas A&M University School of Law, and the Bush School of Government and Public Service.
