OVERVIEW

The SEC-StarHub School Green Awards (SGA) is a self-audited voluntary environmental programme which serves as a platform for students to develop and showcase their environmental efforts, through customised activities which will help them gain better understanding of the environment.

Every year, submissions come from preschools, primary schools, secondary schools, junior colleges, international schools, schools for students with special needs and institutes of higher learning. SGA also receives submissions from schools overseas. In 2020, we continue to focus on the role of advocacy by students, who are required to initiate and lead their own environmental outreach project.

As the title sponsor of SGA for the seventh year, StarHub Limited aims to further environmental outreach efforts to all schools across Singapore.
