Winners of the Cassini scientist for a day competition 2016-2017

More than 1400 students from across Europe participated in the European Cassini scientist for a day competition 2016-2017. Entrants to the competition wrote a 500-word proposal backing one of three targets for study. For the 2016–2017 competition, students could choose between: ice plumes at the south pole of Enceladus, the lakes of Titan, and the hexagon at Saturn’s north pole. Coordinated by ESA, essays were judged by a panel of experts of each participating country. The winners of the 2016-2017 competition are listed by country.
