ASFPM Foundation 12th Annual
Collegiate Student Paper Competition
Deadline Rapidly Approaching on January 29, 2022!
Since 2011, ASFPM Foundation has sponsored a student paper competition as a way to engage the next generation in the important conversations about the floodplain management profession. This year's competition will be a part of the program at the 2022 ASFPM Annual National Conference on May 15-19, 2022. Three student paper finalists are invited to present their papers at the conference where they will also have the opportunity to learn about a wide range of topics relevant to their future career.
Teams consisting of one or more graduate or undergraduate students currently enrolled in a college or university are encouraged to submit abstracts on subjects relating to floodplain or stormwater management no later than January 29, 2022. The abstracts will be judged by a panel of floodplain management professionals and three finalists will be invited to submit their papers in April 2022. The three finalists will receive free registration to the ASFPM Annual National Conference and travel expense assistance to present their papers at a special student conference session on May 17th.
A panel of floodplain management professionals will judge the papers and presentations. Winners will be announced at the awards luncheon on Thursday, May 19th.
