Recover E: Competition winners announced!

We are delighted to be able to announce the three winners of our recent Recover E competition!

Earlier this year, Envision Racing tasked youngsters from around the world with creating their own replica Formula E car, except with one twist – the design had to be made entirely out of electronic waste!

As artist and designer Liam Hopkins (aka ‘Lazerian’) created a full-size, functioning car that wowed audiences at the London E-Prix last month, thousands of kids aged between nine and 21 from all around the world were also putting their skills to the test.

UNEP Ambassador Aidan Gallagher was among the final judging panel for the competition, which named winners in three categories: 6-11 years old, 12-16 years old, and 17-21 years old.

On Wednesday the winners were formally announced on social media, in conjunction with our partners Cartoon Network.

See a little more about the three winning entries below!

Children aged 9 to 11 years
WINNERS: Abbott Community Primary School, Manchester

Children aged 12 to 16 years
WINNER: Angelica Mirian Monteor Popocatl

Young people aged 17 to 21 years
WINNER: Hera May Cabuga

The children from Abbott Community Primary School were the overall winners of the competition, as they received their prize bundle during the recent Race Against Climate Change Live – being surprised on stage by Sky Sports presenter David Garrido.

Congratulations to all our winners! The competition is now closed for entries – but children of all ages can still use all the materials available on our micro-site to build their own model Formula E car.
