Adelaide electrician wins the World Wetlands Game of Champions title

Last Friday was Joshua Elliott’s last day as an electrical apprentice for ASC Shipbuilding Pty Ltd in Adelaide who is contracted by the federal government to build the new air warfare destroyers.

It was also the day he received the phone call from Skillset that he had won the PowerPlay January Challenge worth $1500 and was eligible to compete in last night’s World Wetlands Game of Champions Event.

Joshua is now a qualified tradesman with his employer, $1000 better off and has an Earthwatch expedition to look forward to as the Skillset PowerPlay World Wetlands Champion.

On leaving Bathurst this morning, Josh said in his post on the PowerPlay Facebook site that he was ‘humbled’ by winning the event. He encouraged others, who were eligible, to keep playing the PowerPlay app for a chance to take home the world title.

“The experience is something I will never forget and I hope to get back to the town of Bathurst as soon as possible as it’s such a beautiful place in this great country of ours.”

A large audience attended to participate in the quiz night and hear World Wetlands Day guest speaker, Eric Fisher, give a presentation on the Macquarie Marshes Ramsar sites.

The remaining PowerPlay World Championships will be held to celebrate Earth Day on April 22 and World Environment Day on June 5.
