Results of the SEA-SEIS Song and Rap Competition

The SEA-SEIS Song and Rap Competition for Secondary Schools ran from October to December, 2018. It was advertised on the SEA-SEIS website and through teacher networks.

The competition received excellent entries – creative, imaginative, artistic, and with a variety of original takes on Earth science and seismology at sea. The competition for the Grand Prize was fierce and, in the end, the top prize was shared by two entries. Runners-up have been distinguished by the Jury with Special Mentions.

The Grand Prize winning groups receive the original SEA-SEIS flash drives (16GB, waterproof to 100 m depth), one for each student in the group and one for their teacher. Classes contributing entries that received Prizes and Special Mentions receive inspirational science books, specially selected by the SEA-SEIS Team. Recipients of a Special Mention also receive fun SEA-SEIS pens.

Congratulations to all of you!
