On 16, Jan 2017, the winners of the Zayed Future Energy Prize were announced in Abu Dhabi during Sustainability Week.
The winners included five schools, one each from different regions around the globe. We would like to congratulate Huonville High School, Tasmania, as the winner of the Oceania Region. We reported in the STELR News in November last year, when they were announced as finalists for a $USD 100,000 prize which will be used it to develop an energy hub in the school. It will be linked to an existing energy hub at Greening Australia's Sustainability Learning Centre in Hobart.
Huonville HS became a STELR school in 2014 with assistance from the Pratt Foundation.
You can see the announcement of all the prizewinners, including a video explaining the Huonville HS project at The National website.
