Randwick Council GRIN Award Ceremony

The Mayor and I

The Mayor and I

Today is the 1st of August 2014 and I noticed it was exactly one year ago that I created this blog about my Rewarding Recycling video. I had almost forgotten about the competition that my teacher, Mrs Affleck, had entered my video into. The competition is called GRIN and it stands for ‘GReen INnovation’.

I created this video to show the rewards you can earn from recycling. My principal, Mr Thomas, told me a few weeks ago that I had won an award and I was looking forward to attending the award ceremony where Mayor Scott Nash of Randwick City would attend.

This competition was mainly for adults however a few kids at my school also won an award. Tom, Paul and Matthew from my year did a video on graffiti and how sometimes it can be nice street art.

Hamish also from my year made a video on how there should be more bins in our city. My sister Eve and other kids in year 6 also received an award for their video called Dogpoomentary. I bet you can guess what that was about!

When my name was called out by the Mayor I felt very proud. I spoke to the Mayor and he said that that he enjoyed my video and thought I might have a career in journalism. That made my sister smile!

I am very excited that I was given this wonderful award. My name is now listed on Randwick Council’s website.
