Winner of #EcoSchoolsStayActive
Theme: Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene

We are very excited to announce the winner of our first #EcoSchoolsStayActive  campaign, which encouraged students to create positive, action-based videos under the theme of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH)!
Eco-Schools National Operators were invited to assess the campaign entries and the video that received the highest total score was "Water doesn't fall from the sky" from Portugal. 23 students (aged 10-14) from Colégio dos Platanos worked together to create this informative and creative video. It will surely put a smile on your face! Huge congratulations! 
Thanks to all the Eco-Schools students who participated. To see more videos for the theme of WaSH, visit the Eco-Schools website.
Stay tuned for January when the next #StayActive theme will be launched in collaboration with UNESCO!
