The GLOBE Program would like to congratulate GLOBE Argentina students Marianela P., Lucio M., and Juan W., of the Science Club Huechulafquen, who have been nominated for the Stockholm Junior Water Prize 2021 for their work: "Characterization of the larval habitat of mosquitoes in Northern Patagonia."

The research was conducted during 2020 and 2021; the sampling was conditioned by the pandemic. (The research was suspended in March 2020, and was resumed in February 2021). GLOBE protocols were used, and a majority of the information came from the GLOBE Mission Mosquito campaign, conducted within the framework of The GLOBE Program.

The students will represent Argentina in the Stockholm Junior Water Prize 2021, and will participate in the World Water Week 2021 in Stockholm, Sweden (which will be held virtually this year, due to the pandemic).
