First Place: Ms. Myers - Grades 4/5

 Hunter's Glen Junior Public School, Grade 4/5

Scarborough, Ontario

Hunter's Glen students took on the Eco 360 challenge by designing 3 unique and creative invention plans to help reduce the use of plastics and to keep plastics out of the environment. Students discussed ways in which plastic can be reused, what alternative materials should be used instead of plastic, as well as proposed policies that would reduce plastic use and waste! Their learnings were then shared with over 1000 people through their school newsletter! Check out their podcast about plastics below!

Hunter's Glen students presented their learning to their classroom as well as to their school and families to share their learning!

 St. Thomas More School, Grade 4

Mississauga, Ontario

Students from St. Thomas More School designed a device created to continually go out into the ocean to collect and recycle plastic pollution. This plastic is then to be used by the LEGO ® company to replace the 100 000 tonnes of plastic that they produce to make their products. The students also advocated for the banning of single-use plastics from their school and shared their learnings with their school, friends, and family!
