Congratulations to all teams for participating in the challenge, and thank you for sharing your approach to our wicked problem. For those teams who didn't make it through to the grand final, we know that's not where your GCC and design thinking journeys will end. You are now all designers and social impact champions, and we encourage you to use these new skills to support future game changers and issues that matter in your school community! Together, we know you'll change the game.
