“ACE 2010 will offer students who are interested in pursuing a career in the growing environmental field the chance to gain professional experience and enhance their resumes while making vital industry contacts,” said Mike Kelly, A&WMA Executive Director.
ACE provides opportunities for students to present and publish their work, and to gain recognition for exceptional work by winning awards and cash prizes. Undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students can participate in the Environmental Challenge International (ECi), a student team competition which requires teams to develop and present a multidisciplinary solution to a “real-life” environmental issue. Over $15,000 in prize money will be awarded to the winning teams.
ACE also gives students the chance to network with environmental professionals from around the globe, to gain valuable career advice; and attend career building events including a speed networking session, and a career panel discussion.
Over 2,400 international environmental professionals attend ACE each year. For additional information about the ACE 2010 student program, or to register a team for the ECi, visit www.awma.org/ACE2010.
The Air & Waste Management Association is a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional organization that provides training, information, and networking opportunities to thousands of environmental professionals in over 65 countries. For more information, visit www.awma.org.
