Across the continent, judging panels are now hard at work selecting the various country winners. The winning essays and posters from each country will then compete against each other for the overall honours. The final adjudication and announcement of winners will take place in Zambia from 09 to 10 February 2015. Besides awesome prizes up for grabs in the country awards, overall winners will be rewarded with the trip of a lifetime:
• For the overall winning essay – a trip to Eutelsat in France and onwards to a spaceport to witness a live rocket launch.
• For the overall winning poster – a trip to Eutelsat Offices in Paris and a satellite construction site.
• Runners-up in the poster and essay category win a trip to visit MultiChoice Offices in Johannesburg as well as the South African National Space Agency at Hartebeesthoek.
We would like to thank all the entrants for the hard work and creativity put into the submissions and wish them the best of luck in the competition! If you did not enter this year’s awards, watch this space for details about next year’s competition!
