At first sight, they are ordinary teenagers attending high schools in various corners of Slovakia. What makes them different from their peers is a project they created, worked on and for which they won an Award from the Leaf Academy.

The monitoring of air quality in Liptovský Mikuláš, the TOCHKA student marketing agency production, and the potential use of lignin and natural oils in the prevention of UVA/UVB rays has won an award.

“These young people are our inspiration because they are selflessly doing something for others,” said Branislav Kleskeň said during the award ceremony, one of the founders of LEAF.

More than 130 projects of pupils between the ages of 10 – 19 signed up for the third year of the awards. From the five final projects the jury awarded three winning projects. The winners received 5,000 euros as support to continue in their projects and mentoring by experts in a particular field.

“These young people do not wait for others, they help improve and change Slovakia today,” said Miroslav Kocúr, a manager of the Leaf Award.
