Your Challenge Statement:
How would your carbon-free school or neighbourhood in Singapore look like in 2050?


The Singapore Energy Grand Challenge (Youth) invites all secondary school and junior college students to put your imagination and creativity to the test through designing Singapore's energy future. Using Microsoft's Minecraft: Education Edition (M:EE), bring to life your vision of a carbon-free Singapore in 2050 and beyond!

Form a team of two to four with your schoolmates to participate in the Junior (lower secondary students) or Senior (upper secondary and junior college students) category and submit a three-minute video that showcases your idea of a carbon-free Singapore using M:EE.

Top 3 teams in the Junior and Senior categories will win cash prizes of up to $10,000 in their respective category.
