KWN Global Contest 2012 Awards Ceremony held in London
The KWN Global Contest 2012 Awards Ceremony was held at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London, on August 10. The students from the six finalist schools were joined by their teachers, KWN members from neighboring schools, and media, for a total attendance of more than 230 people. The Grand Prix went to Sembawang Secondary School in Singapore. Their video, titled "The First Appearance of Light" described the difficulties of communication by portraying the bitter sadness of a young girl whose older sister had committed suicide. Based on a true story, the high level of the story structure was praised by the Premier Judges. The videos from the other finalist schools focused on themes such as recycling and friendship. The video by the Iwasaki Junior High School in Japan, which described the children's efforts to recover following the devastation of the North East Japan Earthquake, drew particularly strong applause from the audience.
