Next Stop Rio!

Well, after months of hard work on the part of our students, and a few weeks of anxious waiting, we can finally reveal the results of our Rio+20 competition!

Civil Engineering student Ed Byers scooped first prizeĀ and will now attend the Rio+20 Earth Summit in June. Ed will also be tasked with writing a blog about the debates and giving his views on the discussions.

The standard of entries was so high that the judging panel had a very hard task in deciding the winner, and were so impressed by a number of other entries that five runners up were also selected:

In addition, a further three entries were also selected to be featured on this blog site:

Over the coming weeks, the selected entries, culminating in Ed’s winning entry, will be placed on this blog, and you can sign up to receive these automatically by email by using the ‘Follow blog by email’ on the right of this page.

We’ll be starting later today by posting Bridie’s extremely thoughtful and thought-provoking entry for you all to read.

On behalf of everyone in NIReS, well done to everyone who entered the competition, congratulations to those whose entries were selected to be featured or who made the shortlist and particular congratulations to Ed – we’re sure you’ll be a credit to us all in Rio.

We just wish we could all go with you!
