This competition is now CLOSED for 2017. The Fiji Power competition winners have been selected. Congratulations to Gabby and Ella from Taroona High School in Tasmania. They will be off to Fiji in October to help run a renewable energy program in Fijian Villages, Schools and Medical centres along with the winning Teacher Elizabeth White from St Clare's College in the ACT and her two "runner up" students Alex and Tia.

We need power. If you are a Year 9-10 student, research and submit proposals for a reliable renewable energy supply for a remote Fijian medical centre and you could be on your way to Fiji. Investigate hydro, solar thermal and other renewable sources of power as part of your science studies. Students in Year’s 7-8 are also invited to complete the assignment and will receive a particpation certificate.
Your Task at a Glance;
