Congratulations to all of our winners in the Young Reporters For The Environment (YRE) Litter Less 2020 competition. Keep New Zealand Beautiful is the national operator for this internationally accredited competition which is run under the Foundation For Environmental Education banner (FEE).

The New Zealand YRE Jury, composed of experts in the fields of journalism, photography and environmental sustainable development, met at the Keep New Zealand Beautiful offices in the third week of September to review the submissions and determine the winners. Members of the jury included TV Journalist and Keep New Zealand Beautiful Ambassador Melissa Chan-Green, Environmental Photographer Jacki Key, Creative Director Media Studies at University of Auckland Folko Boermans, and Corporate Affairs Manager at Mars New Zealand Hannah Van der Heyden.
