We hope the winners of Vegas School Competition enjoy their prizes and receive a morale boost by winning!
Most of the school/teacher environmental activities were based on reuse, recycle or beach/village clean-ups. Regrettably, none of the activities included reducing the use of plastic.
We will continue the competition for another year hopefully inspiring teachers and schools to engage more deeply in environmental subjects. Once again, we will offer valuable prizes as encouragement.
This year’s prizes went to schools, teachers and individuals who excelled in environmental education or community clean up campaigns.
Five new laptops went to: Santi Latitu, teacher at SMA1 Banda Neira, Rusani Abdullah, SD Inpress Neira. Novita, a teacher at SMP Selamon, Banda Besar. Yasir is not exactly a teacher but he single-handed keeps the island Pisang clean. Fadlih Naser, SMP 10 Negeri Lonthor, Banda Besar.
One extra laptop went to Magafiri Ali, the creative force behind Parneg and other environmental groups in the Banda islands.
