Interview date, Process and Venue

  1. The essays are judged for originality and creativity in all formats – and the potential to contribute to constructive national or international debate.
  2. Unique and well-argued perspectives score highly.
  3. Students are strongly discouraged from copying and pasting non-original material. The same snippets of text tend to reappear again and again from common sources such as Wikipedia, and thus become very obvious to the essay readers!
  4. Each child’s age is taken into account when judging, so that younger children are not at an unfair disadvantage when compared with older children.
  5. An international panel of sustainability experts and educationalists will select the winning entries in each category.
