The award, which includes a $1,500 prize, will be formally presented to Stillwell during a plenary session at the AWWA’s 130th Annual Conference and Exposition June 12-16 in Washington, D.C.

Each master’s thesis entry was evaluated by members of the award committee on the basis of originality, practical application, value to the water supply field, potential value as a reference and overall clarity of the presentation.

I went to the 1999 Missouri Scholars Academy with Ashlynn and we both took the Engineering Major course together. We’ve certainly come along way since then. Congrats Ashlynn!
