CWSF 2009 - Winnipeg, Manitoba

Print/Download as PDF

I attend Grade 7 at Robert Ogilvie Elementary in Fort St. John. I grew up in Dawson City, Yukon and I spend my summers gold mining in Dawson with my extended family. I enjoy school, and I pride myself on being an honour roll student. I especially like science, with special interest in environment and ecology. I take part in my school's Leadership Club, public speaking competitions, and various sports teams. This is my first year at CWSF, although I have competed at our Regional Science Fair for four years. I have won the Young Science Innovator of the Year Award, the Chevron Canada Ltd. Award and the FSJ Recycle Award. In my spare time I love to play guitar and enjoy riding my dirt bike, fishing, reading, snowboarding, swimming and playing video games. I have future plans of becoming a dentist and I have wanted to be one for as long as I can remember.

Region:Northern British Columbia

School:Robert Ogilvie Elementary
Abstract:I wanted to see if a regular family of four could live a normal life but produce no garbage; through composting, recycling, and consumer management. I found through careful planning and hard work, a family can in fact reduce its waste output to zero.
