Scoring silvers for the environment

Two of SP's finest have once again done us proud when they both won the Silver Standard in the Digital Art Competition on the Environment, organised by the British Council.

Justin Tan Wei Yang from DCMD's 'The Penguin' and Farhana Ja'afar from DDM 'Don't Live in Ignorance! Do Something' were presented their awards on 20 April 2007 at the Singapore Science Centre. Presenting their awards to them was Dr Amy Khor, the Senior Parliament Secretary of the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources.

Their art pieces will be exhibited at the Singapore Science Centre together with the Climate Change exhibition by the Senoko Power Ltd, as part of the Earth Day Celebration.

Justin is the student leader of the mural project at Moberly and had also won in a number of competitions the most recent being the top in the PhotoVista PhotoCompetition organised by MicroSoft in March.
