Wow, what some marvellous Minecrafters you are! Thanks to everyone who entered our Minecraft competition. We set you the task of creating a structure in the game, based on accuracy and neatness of construction, complexity of design, and appropriate use of materials. You blew us away with your entries. The standard was extremely high and it was tough picking the winners and runner-ups. But we got there in the end – and here are the results:
Winner: Michael Kemp, St Mary’s Catholic School, Rotorua
Runner-ups: Tommy O’Toole and Jacob McKinnon, both Meadowbank School, Auckland
Winner: Room 16 ‘DigitaL SoulS’, Greerton Village School, Tauranga
Runner-ups: Ben Hemming, Fergusson Intermediate, Auckland, and Thomas Craven, Adventure School, Porirua
