Ayu Gita and Agus Mardika won the competition by presenting an essay entitled "FLORAKU," which stands for "Environmentally Friendly Floating Garden." Their essay discussed solutions for addressing plastic waste and providing green open spaces. They proposed the idea of a floating garden above the water made of recycled plastic waste as the main material.
