Freshwater Essays - Read the three winning student entries

June 28, 2017 - Water Canada - With support from the RBC Blue Water Project, the International Institute for Sustainable Development – Experimental Lakes Area (IISD-ELA) launched a national essay competition for high school students from grades 8-11 focusing on the topic of freshwater in Canada. In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary students were asked about the best ways we can continue to sustainability manage our fresh water for the next 150 years. The prize for the top three essays in the competition was a trip to Toronto and participation in the Canadian Water Summit.

The students took the top honours: Emily Coates from Moncton New Brunswick, Carl Dizon from Winnipeg, MB and Alexandra Ionita from Winnipeg, MB. Read their essays below.
