Five developing professionals received the first Turfgrass Water Conservation Award (TWCA) at the 2022 ASA, CSSA, SSSA International Annual Meeting held in Baltimore MD. A new component of the C-5 Turfgrass student competitions, the TWCA encourages young scientists to focus on water conservation to enhance the livability and sustainability of the managed environment. The 2022 winners are noted in the tables below.
Expanding the advocacy and communications skills of the next generation of scientists is central to our commitment to stewardship of community. Recipients of the TWCA are encouraged to participate in Congressional Visits Day. TWCA sponsors a Future Leaders in Science award to offset the cost of participation.
Jack Karlin is the Program Administrator for TWCA. His interest is in using policy and the built environment to create livable and sustainable communities.
