With term three fast coming to a close and the snow quickly melting from the ski fields what will the kids be doing these school holidays? Fortunately, there is still time to enter the International 2013 savewater!® Photographic Competition! With categories and great prizes for students of all ages, this is sure to entertain for hours.
In case you need some more inspiration, we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane to see some of the winners from the student categories over the years.
