Nesha Subramaniam

Apple Valley, California

Nesha Subramaniam, 16, of Apple Valley, California, a senior at Apple Valley High School, developed a low-cost method of reducing water contamination caused by dairy cows in her community; to do so, she attended water conservation fairs, collaborated with local dairy farmers, secured funding and conducted experiments with her mentor, a water resource control engineer. Nesha also travelled to Ethiopia to help dairy farmers reduce their own water contamination.
