Results from the Competition

Overall comp. winner ($100): East Gippsland Special School for 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' (Flotsam and Jetsam).
It won because it showed that, in the flotsam and jetsam that can be found in the ocean and LakeTyers there are many wonderful things that nature produces. But we also see a lot of rubbish and fishing gear that harms our native animals and marine life.
