The Judges

Our shortlisted Finalists’ essays will be judged by an international panel of sustainability experts and educationalists, who will select the winning entries in each category.

The judges are looking for originality and creativity in all formats – and the potential to contribute to constructive national or international debate. Unique and well-argued perspectives score highly.

Each student’s age is taken into account when judging, so that younger students are not at a disadvantage when compared with older students.

All work should be original and the students own. A bibliography of references should be included where appropriate and will not be counted as part of the official word limit. Essays with plagiarised content will not be considered for an award.
