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

Each of the winners received a behind the scenes experience at The New Zealand Herald, has had their story published in the news section of the Keep New Zealand Beautiful website and will be put forward for the international Young Reporters competition.

Expressions of interest are now being taken for the Young Reporters For The Environment programme in 2017.  If your school is interested in taking part click here to find out more.
