To celebrate GLOBE’s 18th birthday on Earth Day 2013, students across the world were asked to demonstrate how participating in GLOBE has enabled or inspired them to improve the environment of their home, school or local community. We received over 80 entries into the competition, representing each of GLOBE’s six regions. A panel of judges scored each video based upon a provided rubric. The overall winner for the competition comes from Kingsburg High School in Kingsburg, California, USA.
The winners, broken down by region are (click on the school’s name to open up the video in a different window):
Africa: Ilboru High School from Arusha, Tanzania
Asia and Pacific: Donchanwittayakom School in Donchan District, Thailand
Europe and Eurasia: SIES Vega de San Mateo from Islas Canarias, España
Latin America and Caribbean: Domingo Faustino Sarmiento from Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina
Near East and North Africa: The 25th Secondary Girls School at Al-Madinah Al-Monawarah from Al-Madinah Al-Monawarah, Saudi Arabia
North America: Madison Plains High School from London, Ohio
We really enjoyed seeing all of the wonderful videos created by our GLOBE students. Please be sure to visit our Facebook page or our playlist on our YouTube Channel to see more videos from the competition, including second and third place winners from each region.
