Each year, our board and staff work very hard to spread the word of our (5) College Scholarship Awards. We provide up to (5) $500 scholarships for first time or returning college students annually. The application deadline for the 2020 awards will be February 5, 2020. All applications must be postmarked by that date. Applicants must be a citizen or legal resident of the United States, a resident of the State of New York, and reside within a water or wastewater system that is a member of the NYRWA. Applications are available on our website www.nyruralwater.org and in our quarterly Aquafacts magazine.
The Meredith H. Thompson Award is a continuing education award which allows (1) delegate from (1) of our voting member systems to attend the National Rural Water Association, WaterPro Conference. This is a great opportunity to meet and network with water and wastewater professionals from across this great nation, attend continuing education courses, and browse the extensive exhibit hall. To be eligible for this drawing, you must represent a NYRWA voting member system, attend our annual business meeting on Tuesday at our Annual Training Workshop & Exhibition, and put your prepared card in for the drawing…it’s that simple! All you need to do is attend our Annual Business Meeting. The 41st Annual NYRWA Technical Training Workshop & Exhibition will be held May 18-20, 2020, in Lake Placid. In 2020, the NRWA WaterPro Conference will be held September 14-16, in Phoenix, AZ. Good Luck!
