How the competition progress

School level
selection

The competition starts at the school level. The students will form 2 to 4 member teams, each with a unique name. After a team has zeroed in on a topic from the given options, the brain-storming, discussions and naturally, a great deal of fun will follow!

Once the team has set their plan of action, it is time to put it to the first test- the first challenge will be to convince the school coordinator to support your cause; remember to use whatever tools necessary, including sketches or diagrams where required. Other teams from your school will also be competing for the chance to participate, so don’t hold anything back!

Each participating school will select one team to represent them in each category at YES Expo. The selected teams will defend their idea and those that did not will know that they have contributed to the greater cause – turning our blue planet into a green one!

This is where the real hustling and bustling begins! The selected teams will start working on their actual models, tweaking, improving and editing as they go.


The last date for submitting entries along with the Submission Form to the school coordinator is 6th February 2017. Get submission forms from participating schools or download it here.
