Huonville makes global schools final

Huonville High School is in the running to win $US 100,000 after becoming the only Australian finalist in an international competition on renewable energy and sustainability innovation. The school is one of only 14 from around the world to reach the finals of the Global High Schools Zayed Future Energy Prize, which aims to inspire future generations “to be responsible, sustainable citizens”. Students from Huonville designed a range of sustainable solutions for their school, including a windmill, pellet mill, bio-digester and a bicycle-powered mobile cinema. Coordinator Nel Smit said: “It is huge; a little school in country Tasmania has been awarded this international recognition for their initiatives in renewable energy and innovation. It just provides an example of what a very small school can do with … some innovation and leadership.”
