The Falkland Islands Government and the British Embassies in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Chile are delighted to announce the winners of the regional student competition. Participants from the four countries were asked to submit a short video in English, in which they answered the question: “Why would I like to meet my neighbours in the Falkland Islands?”
More than 300 students entered the competition. All entries were reviewed and representatives from the Falkland Islands Government and British Embassies of the four countries selected the winners:
Brazil – Karina Penha
Argentina – Nicolas Aguiar
Chile – Felipe Gárate
Uruguay - Alejandra Camacho
The winners will travel to the Islands in February, where they will spend a week experiencing the unique character of the Falkland Islands including food and culture, nature and environment and meeting members of the community.
