Indian winners of 2016 GYELS
Dear Eco-generation members in India,

First of all, we apologize that the announcement has been delayed. It was tough to decide the winners and honorable mentions among many entries.

Before announcing the full list, we would like to share jury's comment on the overall entries this year.

 Overall, I saw some very nice essays on the topic this year that both addressed the theme and provided very good support. However, there was a large percentage of essays that seemed to have a slightly different topic. I do not think it was more than last year, but still a sizable number. One disappointing issue from this year is that there was more plagiarized work this year than last. 

In terms of recommendations, I might suggest three things that are related to the above points. First, maybe extend the essay topic to two sentences to capture a little more of the essence that you are looking for from the students. Second, mentioning that plagiarized work is unacceptable might also be a good thing. Lastly, trying to expand the scope of the participating students would allow for a more interesting mix of essays and approaches.

Beyond that, as stated, I saw some very interesting and very good writing. I hope to see equally good quality essays next year!

We are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2015 Eco-generation Environmental Leadership Competition in India as follows
