Jeramie Paz selected as high school finalist in the UN Sustainable Development Goals Challenge

Jeramie Paz received an Honorable Mention award in the Environment: Management & Pollution category at the 2017 International Sustainable World (Engineering Energy Environment) Project Olympiad held on May 3-8 in Houston, Texas.  Jeramie presented his project on enhanced removal of metals from contaminated water using renewable biomass (pine wood).  There were 437 competing projects by students from the U.S. and by international students from about 70 countries.  ISWEEEP aims to inspire interest among young student scientists for exploring solutions to preserve Earth’s resources and create a sustainable planet for everyone.

The School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University established the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG) Challenge in 2015, inviting students to “imagine ways – big and small – of transforming our fragile world.”

There were 252 applicants from 23 nations and 27 states this year.  Innovative proposals to end poverty, protect the earth, and ensure prosperity were submitted. The UN SDG Challenge gave participants a platform for their ideas and a chance for seed funding, along with scholarships to attend Seton Hall University.

Jeramie Paz was one of 10 high school finalists selected out of the 252 projects by a panel of judges.  The finalists presented their strategies – virtually, or in person — on April 21, 2017.

Finalists:
Anne Lee, Sammamish, WA
Grace Anderson, Millstone, NJ
Karen Lu, Cooper City, FL
Tinayeishe Elohim Nota, Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe
Jeramie Paz, Griffin, GA
Jemimah Emily Rajack, Fairfax, VA
