We were excited and delighted to be able to notify the winners of Category Awards by email last week. With close to 900 projects submitted, the competition in many of the categories was fierce. Congratulations are extended to all students who entered – particularly for the perseverance they demonstrated in completing work of such quality during this pandemic. The Sponsored Awards are currently being judged and we will notify students as soon as we receive those notifications from the sponsors.
All details of the awards won by students will be announced in a series of online events between Monday 16th November and Thursday 19th November. Please stay tuned and check back here and on our social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) for details of programs and timings.
Thank you to everyone for your enthusiasm and support of our program in this very challenging year. We received close to 900 projects across our three STEM categories!
Our team of volunteer judges has now completed the first round of judging and we are in the process of working with our Senior Assessors and sponsors to decide on category and sponsored award winners. We are hopeful that we may be able to contact winners (via email) within the next few weeks. We thank you for your support and your patience as we negotiate this mammoth task.
Under the current pandemic conditions, it will also not be possible for us to hold an in person Presentation Ceremony. We are currently exploring options for how we will announce all the award winners and will post details on the website and on social media soon. Stay tuned!
