Best Environmental Strategy
Dollar Academy

We continue to encourage more entries to this category and are pleased to see an increase again this year.  The entries have shown a good level of understanding of the issues and the winning schools have presented practical and effective solutions.

 

Winner

Dollar Academy – The Galley

The team chose FSC certificated wood free coated papers, appreciating the tactility that this offers for a printed magazine in preference to an online publication.  This publication was strengthened by two thought provoking environmental articles.

 

Highly Commended

Durham School – The Durham Eye

The school project included preparation of a spreadsheet designed to calculate the carbon emissions of their publication and the study of different environmental methods of production.  The team also visited a local paper mill to review the effects of the paper cycle on the environment.

 

Thomas Bennett Community College – Booggle

The article ‘Eco Warrior’ shows a good environmental insight into waste management.  They also tried to raise awareness by writing about ways in which wildlife can be injured or killed by discarded waste materials.

Highly Recommended
