WE-ECO COMPETITION WINNERS 2019
The Department of Energy (DOE) organized the WE-ECO (Water, Environment and Energy Conservation) competition for Secondary Schools for 2019. Competitions were in the form of Essays and Energy Model. The theme for the competition was “Conserve Today Use Tomorrow”.
Students who participated in the competition were able to broaden their knowledge on global warming, rise in sea level, over-exploitation of our natural resources and pollution generated through energy production, particularly those directly affecting Fiji.
The judging of the WE-ECO competition was done in September of 2019 and winning schools were informed of the results in April of 2020. In the essay competition, Shivanjali Singh of Year 13B won the second prize in the Secondary School Category. She received a certificate and a cheque of $250. She wrote an essay based on the topic “In light of the global trends of climate change, what strat-egies can the youth use to assist in the conservation of energy “. The essay was approximately 850 words and only one entry per student was accepted.
Moreover, in the model competition, Praveet, Shannon, Shivanjali (of Year 13B) and Danish (of Year 13A) won the third prize in the divisional category. Each student received a certificate and a cheque of $350. Students were required to create a working model focusing on clean energy. The model imitated possible real-life setup on smaller scale which focused on Renewable Energy. Models were constructed solely by students and were cost effective, i.e. cheapest possible model mainly from recycled or discarded material.
Consequently, the Department of Mathematics and Physics would like to thank the students for participating in the competition and applaud the winners. We would also like to appreciate the sustenance of the parents and a special acknowledgment is forwarded to the school administration for their whole hearted support throughout this course.
To conclude, the department extends this competition to all the students at Tavua College who are imaginative, have ingenuity and creativity, and are resourceful to contribute their ideas and excel.
