Quote from the article:
"The premier student competition which centers on the use of imagination, creativity and technology to help solve some of the world’s toughest problems, was launched in 2003 globally and in 2008 in East Africa. For the first time since its inception, East Africa will be represented by 2 teams from Uganda and Kenya at the global finals which will be held at St Petersburg in Russia in July this year. In total, one hundred fifty (150) Ugandan students totaling to ten teams competed during a challenging day of presentations, which brought together students from universities across the country."

It is really great to see the change that has come about in some of the African countries. They have been through generations of abuse and turmoil, now finally are beginning to find a better side of life. Congratulations to those who participated, and to the winners.

Congratulations to all the winners and participants. Perhaps these bright young people will help to stop the poaching that is killing off their animals. Thanks JL
