ISLP Poster Competition 2010-2011

The ISLP Poster Competition 2010−2011 was open to teams of 2−3 students in two age divisions: students born in 1995 and younger, and students born in 1992 and younger. The theme of the competition was “Environment”.

In each country, a country coordinator for ISLP worked very hard to encourage schools and teachers to participate, provided resources and guidelines, and arranged a judging panel and the judging process. The posters were first judged within their countries. After that, the national winner posters were evaluated by an international jury consisting of members from six countries:

  • Martha Aliaga (USA), chair
  • Chris Wild (New Zealand)
  • Iddo Gal (Israel)
  • Metka Zaletel (Slovenia)
  • Christine Reading (Australia)
  • Enriqueta Reston (Philippines)
