The ‘Nature’s Rangers’ team from SMK Lopeng Tengah, Miri, Sarawak, came out tops in the recently concluded Toyota Eco Youth 2013 Challenge, beating second placed SMK (A) Wataniah, Machang, Kelantan and SM St Michael Penampang, Sabah. 15 schools took part.
The Toyota Eco Youth (TEY) programme, held for the 13th consecutive year, motivates participating schools towards a greener and cleaner lifestyle not only within school premises but also in their community. This year saw better project planning and strategic partnerships with stakeholders. Closer attention was paid to details such as getting media attention, keeping good records and rallying for support.
Winners were judged based on points from onsite judging, website/blog development, exhibition displays and presentation at the TEY convention. This system helped the students see a project in its entirety; from planning and idea development to implementation, marketing, vocal presentation and creative input. — Full Story at Paultan —
