Presentations and variety of topics

Lisa-Marie Peters, Sophia Arent, Tabea Hohn, Lia Eversmeier and Yazan Hamedi presented their work on a variety of topics, ranging from the causes and consequences of drought in the Amazon basin to the chemistry of adhesives. The five pupils were selected by their subject teachers on the basis of their outstanding achievements and created vivid presentations, which they presented courageously and confidently to an interested audience and a select jury.

Composition of the jury

The jury consisted of Prof. Dr. Henning Trsek (inIT | TH OWL), Juliane Gaßmann (Youth and Schools division of the City of Lemgo), Till Brand (Lippische Landes-Zeitung), Jan Rullkötter (school student council), A-level student and last year's winner Lynn Sawusch, sixth form coordinator Olaf Göke and Matthias Winter from the Rotary Club Lemgo-Sternberg, who donated the prize money.

Tabea Hohn and Yazan Hamedi impress as winners

"All five experts in their field presented their topics in a confident, clear and highly interesting way," reported the MWG. Despite the high quality of all the contributions, Tabea Hohn and Yazan Hamedi ultimately came out on top. Tabea Hohn impressed with her English presentation on the Nigerian film industry, while Yazan Hamedi scored with his passionate presentation on the chemistry of adhesives.

Expertise and commitment recognised: praise for all participants

The other participants also received high praise for their exceptional achievements. Lisa-Marie Peters impressed with her comprehensive knowledge of the effects of climate change in the Amazon basin, Sophia Arent brought her personal experiences from a course trip to Madrid into her lively presentation on city tourism, and Lia Eversmeier left a lasting impression with her concise presentation on sign language and a printed sign language ABC.
