Any high school in Malaysia is encouraged to submit ONE comprehensive proposal idea to the official AH Portal where 20 schools with the best proposals will be selected by a panel of experts to continue as finalists. Then, three representatives from each finalist school are required to attend a capacity building workshop to qualify for a mini-grant in preparation for the final phase of the project.
Each school is required to submit their ONE comprehensive proposal comprising of all three elements listed below. Total marks are made up of all points awarded for all three components individually. FOR EXAMPLE: 40 points for Energy Conservation, 40 for School Farming, 20 for Recycling.
This component focuses on both quantity and quality. The quantitative aspect of this sub-category is measured by the weight of recycled materials collected. The qualitative element will be evaluated by the methods taken by schools to convince their students to contribute to the recycling programme.
Points will be awarded through both elements. Examples of recyclable objects include those made from these materials:
This component aims at turning a piece of unused or abandoned land into a creative urban farm.
The points awarded will be evaluated by:
- Produce per area
- Produce harvested/grown in a given time frame
- Creativity and Design
This component targets the energy consumption habits in your school. Energy can be conserved in any form such as bought materials, water and electricity.
The points will be awarded based on official records presented such as but not limited to:
- Water Bills
- Electricity Bills
