MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 13, 2012 /CNW/ - GE Canada today announced the winners for the first GE Green Innovation Award.  The award was created to recognize outstanding achievement at the high school level on a scientific project with 'green' objectives that help improve environmental performance. "This award is designed to reward and inspire future scientists and engineers to continue focusing on green and environmentally friendly products and solutions to some of today's toughest problems." said Agostino Renna, VP Growth & Market Strategy, GE Canada.  "We were impressed by the incredible level of imagination, sophistication and environmental consideration that we saw at this year's Toronto Science Fair. " The winners for the 2012 Green Innovation Award are Gultekin Barhudarova and Zeynep Tosun, two Grade 12 students from Toronto's Nile Academy.  Their award winning project is titled "Sticky and Safe Mess: From Banana to Glue".  The students have developed a safe and organic glue from common bananas, which proved to be more adhesive and environmentally friendly than the traditional white glue used by young children and students across Canada. "We came up with the idea by simply playing with a variety of different foods and realized that banana peels have a naturally sticky sap. We then wondered what could be made from the sap, and after a series of experiments developed natural, organic glue that can be easily created by anyone with bananas in their home", said the winners. The student's award will be presented at the opening ceremonies of this year's Green Living Show, at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto, April 13-15.  Their award winning project will be showcased as part of the Show's "Green Innovations & Inventions Exhibition".
