Year 12 Semi-Finalist in 2022 Science without Borders Challenge

Congratulations to Mia Wang! Mia, one of our Year 12 international students, has been selected as one out of 34 semi-finalists worldwide for her artwork entered in the 2022 Science without Borders Challenge. Of the 34 semi-finalists, she is one out of two students from New Zealand that were selected. This international student art contest engages students in important ocean issues through art. For this year’s competition, students were asked to illustrate one or more of the ways people can use a ridge-to-reef approach to conservation to preserve coral reefs.

In Mia’s own words:

 “The theme of this painting is coral and ocean pollution. What I want to express in this painting is that many marine creatures and marine plants have been polluted by people's plundering and occupation of the ocean after many years. Many plants and animals have become different from before because of pollution. For this painting I try to use the marker and illustration style to reflect my theme, also I want to let everyone know from this painting that ocean pollution is terrible and unfair for marine animals and plants.”
