This year, we held the State finals as long distance events, offering our author presentations virtually. Amie Kaufman, Wai Chim and Lisa Nicol delivered talks to students all over Queensland, then teams were required to complete their competition in their own schools. Answers sheets were scanned and sent in and marked by coordinators (Jenny Stubbs Year 5/6 and Claire Jackson & Trish Buckley Years 7/8 & 9/10. While clearly getting all the teams down to Brisbane is the preferred options, we were grateful to just be able to complete it.
The winners and runners ups are:
Year 5/6 Competition
Winners – Wilston State School from Brisbane North Region
Runners-up – Charleville School of Distance Education from South West Region
Year 7/8 Competition
