The ABPA's focus is to have a public educated in the value and need for active local backflow prevention programs. Our goal is safe drinking water through cross-connection control. The organization works to build a greater public awareness of backflow prevention as one component of safe drinking water.
The competition is open to all persons of high school age (at least age 13 and no older than age 19 as of December 31, 2018) and legal residents of the United States or Canada. Applicants may currently attend a public, private, or parochial school, or be home-schooled. The applicant is not required to be college-bound; the scholarship money can be used for any type of advanced education. Previous winners and the immediate families of ABPA officers and directors are not eligible to participate. Further, the immediate relatives of directors and staff of Federal Student Aid, Semester at Sea, or the National Student Leadership Conference are not eligible to participate.
There will be one scholarship presented as a $1,500 check in the winner's name to a recognized statesponsored, tax-deferred 529 Investment National College Savings Program, to the winner's established 529 Investment Educational IRA (or the Canadian equivalent), or to an accredited school in the name of the winner. The scholarship is not transferable.
