Results for our 2022 International Finalists

in the Hybrid International Competition

Following two years of virtual competition, the 48th International Conference for Future Problem Solving International was a hybrid event in 2022. Some competitors were onsite at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, whilst others competed virtually.

Our New Zealand students once again did us really proud, and together with an Adult Service Award, New Zealand brought home 8 trophies this year.
