S.H. Sung Creativity Award

1. BACKGROUND

The “S.H. Sung Creativity Award” is established in 2004. It aims at promoting creativity and encouraging Chung Chi students to produce innovative plans on promoting human well-being or improving campus environment. Awarded ideas in previous years include a proposal focusing on waste reduction and management as well as up-cycling in the campus; a design of a headcount system for the school bus in order to shorten the time for boarding and alighting from the vehicles; the idea of building “Piano Stairs” to blend physical exercise and music in our everyday life.

 

2. ABOUT THE PROJECT

2.1   Nature: The project can be any creative ideas to improve campus environment or to promote human well-being. The award is to encourage creativity only, not for the purpose to realize the project.

2.2   Topic: The topic can be one that concerns College development, campus environment, campus life or living environment in general. Applicants have to submit an innovative idea on resolving the issue. Originality is one of the key elements for selection.

Topics are suggested to fulfill one of the following objectives:

- to improve campus environment
- to improve learning atmosphere
- to encourage and enhance community service
- to promote College life
- to contribute to the general life of Hong Kong
