2018 Award Updates

Celebrating Achievement!

This year’s winners come from around the globe:

  • Water: Mazhapolima. India
  • Air: FUPROSOMUNIC, Nicaragua
  • Food: The Fish Farm Project, Nigeria
  • Youth: Ebomvini Primary School, South Africa

In the coming months, WAFA representatives will travel to the winners’ sites to present the Award presentations in person.

Our winners are so excited!  One has already issued a press release that has been picked up by regional and national media: 33,000,000+ circulation! Celebration plans are afoot.

Another winner’s country is suffering political strife.  Rather than run unnecessary risk, they are planning a low-key local celebration.  If all goes well, we can participate online. That’s the guts and glory that make our winners and finalists true “silent heroes!”:  they prevail against all odds.

Stay tuned for further details!

The WAFA Award Trophy

For Our Winners

The WAFA Amphora is the work of Mogens Møller, the noted Danish sculptor. His creations include Danish currency designs and the Axeltorv vases at Tivoli.

The amphora has timeless significance. Its classic trophy form is a universal symbol of outstanding achievement. At the same time, its fundamental purpose is to safeguard vital food and drink.
