Winners of the Care 4 Dolphins & Our Oceans School Competition 2018
We want to send a big thank you to all the schools and classes who participated in our contest and helped make it a success! The competition entries were amazing and the votes submitted by our judging panel were very close.
A BIG congratulations to Blakewood Public School Year 1/2, the overall winner! The class gets some great new books for their library, to name and adopt one of their local dolphins and a visit from the Dolphin Research Australia education team! The winning class entry was a multimedia presentation that combined the voices of the children reciting their pledge and voices of the dolphins.
A BIG congratulations also to Mt Gravatt State High School Year 12 Geology Class who is the overall runner up and high school winner! The class used over 100 bottles to create their sculpture of a bottlenose dolphin and pledged to recycle all plastics in the school and clean the nearby creeks.
The level of entries were so incredible and inspiring, the judges also decided to award all entries the opportunity to name and become symbolic guardians of their very own dolphin from their region. The dolphins chosen belong to populations that we have been studying for some years and have got to know. We can’t wait to hear what names our Dolphin Heroes give their dolphins!
Check out the incredible entries from Schools and their visual pledges below.
Congratulations to the Winners & Thank you to all the teachers and students for helping to Care 4 Dolphins & Our Oceans!
Change cannot be made without the helping hands of many!
