"Slowly I am realizing that I got 1st prize. At the moment of the announcement I was truly surprised by the decision of the jury, because there were a lot of good projects presented there. I even had few favourites from the other countries, but I am glad the jury decided my project was the best.
 .
It was very good experience, especially for getting in touch with other students and being able to see different ideas...
.
If I knew before how nice this contest is I would have definitely joined some years earlier. Whole event and organization were on a high level, so I will certainly recommend this contest to other students."
