ABPA Harrington-Arthur Memorial Scholarship Essay Competition
The ABPA Harrington-Arthur Memorial Scholarship Essay Competition was established to reward students that seek to increase their knowledge and understanding of how Cross-Connection Control and Backflow Prevention help ensure safe drinking water.

Backflow Prevention programs are essential to ensure that the water that reaches your home, school or place of business is as safe and pure as it was when it left the water treatment plant.
Essay contest topic: "Explain the difference between a containment cross-connection program and an isolation or primary cross-connection program. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of each. Which program offers the best protection against backflow and why." Essays must be 700-1,200 words. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
