2020 Think Kind Competition Winners

This year we have received many well-written essays, poems, narratives, stories, letters, informative slides, cute drawings, creative posters, smart and educational videos, and a song! The creativity of the students is very impressive! It made the judging process hard, but we have selected the top 10 best projects.

These are the finalist entries of the 2020 Think Kind Student Competition!

2020 Think Kind Student Competition Winning Entry

Harmann Mahey (Year 8) Mission Heights Junior College

2020 Think Kind Student Competition Winning Entry – “I have made this artwork reflecting the message of “E mate ana a Papatuanuku” which means “Mother Earth is dying”. The art is incorporating the body of a lady (Mother Earth) and the many amazing features of Earth and New Zealand relating to the Maori culture crying because of the damage we have done to Earth; eg the fantail is whispering whilst sitting on a twig with no leaves, giving awareness to others that his home is in the urge of dying. Another example is the taniwha, getting fierce and aggressive due to the disturbance to the sea eg sea levels rising and pollution in oceans. The sun is also demostrating an impact of concern and worrisome upon the looking from above at Mother Earth.”
