The President’s Award for the Environment, administered by the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, is the highest environmental accolade in Singapore. It recognises and honours the sustained environment- and water-related contributions by environmental champions from the People, Public and Private (3P) sectors. Kudos to staff and students in ITE who have put in lots of time and effort to care for the environment.

The award was a special art piece designed by Iskandar Jalil, a winner of Singapore’s Cultural Medallion. It is nicely housed in a pedestal that contains a citation on ITE’s involvement leading to this environmental award. The grand President’s Award pedestal now sits at the atrium of the ITE Headquarters.
