On June 15th, representatives from 5 finalist teams across Turkey arrived in Istanbul for the national celebration event. Following the opening speeches from the Turkish delivery partners and HSBC, the 5 teams presented their Water Explorer journey in front of the Jury and answered the Jury’s questions
Excitment and tensions ran high as the judges deliberated over who should become the national winners but finally team DAÇKAŞİF took the title!
All the teams received trophies for taking part and every student had their efforts rewarded with an entertaining and informative book on the environment.
The winning team were treated to a dinner overlooking the beautiful Bosphorus waterway and even tucked into a Water Explorer cake for pudding. The following day, they visited the Sealife Aquarium where they had the chance to explore life underwater.
Congratulations guys, see you at the international awards!
