Many thanks to all students who submitted videos in this year’s challenge and the teachers who advised them along the way. The challenge entries demonstrate many creative storytelling approaches and techniques in communicating science.

The videos were scored based on Quality of Storytelling (20%), Quality of Science Communication (30%), Quality of Public Health Message (10%), Originality and Creativity (20%), Quality of Production (10%), and Proper Accreditation (10%), and our panel of expert judges selected the three winners of the Judges' Award.
