The winners were announced one group at a time, and were given the recognition and praise they deserve. Students from each group found the courage to do a thank you speech, each one as humble and flawless as the next. The range of different projects was inspiring in itself. From over 700 entries, the winning projects covered themes such as job training, the environment and mental health. Even though I did not know any of the students personally, I felt an overwhelmingly proud of each and every one of them. It has certainly made me proud to have a job within the education sector where the creativity of the next generation has room to flourish.
