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.


The 2024 competition is now closed.
