The Appita 2021 New Speakers’ final was held virtually on the 19th of November 2021, and for those who joined, it was a very interesting and close final! The winner of this year’s competition was Pranav Nair, Opal Australian Paper Maryvale Mill. Pranav receives an engraved plaque, and an education grant of $2,000.

The runner-up Caine Davies, Oji Fibre Solutions Tasman Mill, will receive a cash prize of $200.

Congratulations to both contestants for their great presentations, and a big thank you to both Pranav and Caine for participating in this year’s competition.

Appita thanks the generous support of the sponsors, the judging panel, Paul Robilliard, Kim McGrouther, Russell Allan and Kelly Thompsell, and Thilina Gunawardhana from our YPN committee for chairing the session. For those who would like to watch the recording click here.
