Vetro Challenge for elementary school students

22.11.2022: For many years now, Vetropack Straža d. d. has been conducting school activities aiming to encourage children to recycle and act sustainably. Vetro Challenge is a new project based on creating solutions for five innovation challenges, i.e. tasks addressing glass recycling.

The Vetro Challenge competition is designed for students from the 5th to the 8th grade of elementary schools in the Krapina-Zagorje County. There will be ten schools participating  in a one-day competition, and each school registers a team of four students and a teacher. Each team will create a solution for the chosen challenge and present it to the evaluation team, which will select the best three.

With this kind of competition, we encourage the youngest ones to recognise challenges as opportunities and create positive changes in society. In addition to sustainable reflexion, they develop an innovative and systematic way of thinking and the skills needed for project management and persuasive presentation.

The competition will be held on December 10, 2022 at the Entrepreneurship Center in Krapina. Schools are invited to register their teams according to the instructions provided to them as part of the invitation to the competition.
