June 2013 student winners announced!

After each event we ask all of the moderators and scientists to select students who they think asked great questions and engaged really well in the chats.

Well done to all of the student winners below, and also to the runners up and everyone who took part – so many of you came up with interesting questions and comments and were both polite and enthusiastic, but we could only pick one winner in each zone…
