California Water Law Writing Prize
$1000 Writing Prize
to be presented at the 2020 Water Law Symposium
Maximum of 5,000 words, not including endnotes. Shorter submissions are very welcome and will be given equal considerations. Papers longer than 5,000 words may be trimmed to meet the 5,000 word maximum, with brief summaries of the excised material (summaries not included in the word count). Students submitting a trimmed paper must provide two versions of the paper: the trimmed version meeting the 5,000 word requirement, and the complete version.
