Winner of PlanetFix, our high school student competition, announced in The Advertiser

PlanetFix reflects the passion young people have towards the environmental challenges facing their generation.

In collaboration with the Advertiser and SA Science Teachers Association, the Environment Institution ran a competition for South Australian high school students. They were asked “In 50 words or less, what is your best solution to climate change?”.

We were shown this is at the forefront of young peoples’ mind by the creative entries we received, to this testing issue.

The top 12 entries were invited to the University of Adelaide, where participants worked with leading researchers to transform their article in into a larger piece. The top three were chosen, being Iris Fraser, Jack Tibby and Sasha Saulwick.

Published in The Advertiser, we delighted to announce that Jack Tibby’s article has been chosen as the winner. Congratulations to Jack and well done to Sasha and Iris for their hard work and dedication to a topic that is obviously close to their heart.
