The Waterline
Student Challenge 2021

The Waterline Student Challenge

We partnered with some of the region’s stand-out businesses and organisations for The Waterline Student Challenge 2021!


We gave students aged 11-18, the chance to use their creativity to make a positive impact on their school/college or community by delivering an eco project of their choice.

Individuals and teams from across the region created innovative solutions to environmental problems, with projects including artwork, campaigns, concepts, apps and games!

Entries were judged by a panel of representatives from Humber-based businesses and organisations (SSE Thermal, Yorkshire Water, Ørsted, Associated British Ports, Willerby, KCOM and more!) with finalists announced ahead of this year's Waterline Summit and an overall winner announced at the event.

A huge congratulations to our winners and finalists - and a big thank you to everyone who took part!

Overall Winner: RDUTC's Sustainability Crew, Ron Dearing UTC - Catherine and Jaden

The team researched how much carbon emissions can be reduced by cycling to school instead of driving and created a carbon calculator to show users the impact they are having on the environment. Their findings were delivered in a presentation to all year 10 students at the school.
