Soil Rocks Competition


The Regina Geotechnical Group (RGG) is excited to announce the winners of the 2020-21 Soil Rocks video competition! The competition requires students to submit engaging videos related to the field of geotechnical (soil and rock) engineering. It is open to all ages of student across Saskatchewan. This year, the RGG’s panel of expert judges had to make some difficult decisions from among a top-quality batch of videos. One winner was chosen from each of the four age categories. The winning teams/individuals are:

  • Junior Geoscientists (KG- gr.4): Moss Heatcoat (Moss Heatcoat)

  • Elementary Engineers (gr.5-8): Clearwater (Claire Haynes)

  • Tectonic Teens (gr.9-12): Clearwater Kodiaks (Ava Haynes)

  • Cretaceous Collegians (technical or university): The Slope Stabilizers (Liam McCann, Anna Gorovikova)
