Zero Waste Competition is at the FINAL! Based on creativity, repurposed materials used and the outcome of their product, we have excitingly selected 9 finalists who managed to nab the highest points on the scoreboard. Nevertheless, we were bowled over by the creations of all 33 groups of participants!
Looking at the colourful and varied types of the items that our participants have made, we think the judges will definitely have a hard time choosing the final winners! Due to Covid19, we unfortunately had to postpone our live judging event but we will certainly keep you posted through our Facebook page as soon as the date is confirmed.
As part of the competition, our finalists had to master their 90-second video pitch to present their creations. We were so excited to see how some of them introduced themselves and their products differently! Some even pitched in English and that is REAL bravest!
On behalf of her team, Teacher Lis also expressed how excited and happy she is to be selected as one of the finalists of the competition! We are absolutely proud of our teachers creating their tables and chairs out of cardboards and rice bags!
Talking about the final judging of the event, Victoria enthused: “I am beyond chuffed for the day to come! While watching the video pitches, I can totally feel the passion from the children. I am so proud and amazed!” To what Victoria shared, we can say that we are too!
