ASFPM Foundation announces its 11th Annual Student Paper Competition

Are you currently enrolled in a college or university in a flood risk management related field? Would you like an opportunity to present your paper at the Association of State Floodplain Managers annual national conference in Raleigh, North Carolina this May ?

Every spring the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) conducts an annual national conference that attracts more than 1,200 floodplain management professionals from federal, state and local government, as well as the private sector for a week-long event that showcases state-of-the-art techniques, programs, practices, resources, materials, equipment, accessories and services to accomplish flood mitigation, risk reduction and other community goals. Since 2011, ASFPM Foundation has sponsored a student paper competition as a way to engage the next generation in the important conversations pertaining to our profession. Three 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 that will be relevant to their future career. Next year's competition will be a part of the program at the 2021 ASFPM annual national conference on May 9 -13, 2021 in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

Teams consisting of one or more students currently enrolled in a college or university are encouraged to submit abstracts on subjects relating to floodplain or stormwater management by February 1, 2021. The abstracts will be judged by a panel of floodplain management professionals and three finalists will be invited to submit their papers in April and then present their papers at the 2021 ASFPM annual national conference on May 11, 2021 in Raleigh, North Carolina (or via virtual conference, if necessary).

A panel of floodplain management professionals will judge the papers and presentations. Winners will be announced at the awards luncheon on Thursday, May 13. First Place: $1,000 scholarship; Second Place: $500 scholarship; Third Place: $250 scholarship.

Abstracts must be submitted by Feb. 1, 2021. Learn more.

Thank you to our donors and volunteers for making GivingTuesday a huge success!

This year ASFPM Foundation set an ambitious GivingTuesday goal of raising $20,000 for the Future Leaders Scholarship and doubling the number of individual donors that participated. Inspired by the impact the Future Leaders Scholarship has had on the life of its inaugural recipient, Jesus Mulgado, and this year's recipient Elizabeth Lacey, ASFPM Chapters as well as individual GivingTuesday ambassadors partnered with the Foundation to help spread the word on social media. Dewberry generously provided a matching gift for the first $3,000 raised doubling the impact of those individual donors. Then an anonymous donor touched by the scholarship’s impact and by Dewberry’s matching gift gave us an additional matching gift of $5,000. Together you helped raise over $22,000 for the Future Leaders Scholarship program, which is equivalent to one year of scholarship funding for future scholars. THANK YOU!
