The project aims to two parts: 1. organizing the environmental knowledge challenge competition in 16 counties or cities in central, southern, and eastern Taiwan, and 2. organizing a review writing competition after watching the EPA environmental channel. Concerning the environmental knowledge challenge competition, preliminary competition rules are set, assisting 16 counties and cities to hold the competition. With regard to writing competition, a three-month promotion activity and an award ceremony were held in December.
Before the beginning of the environmental knowledge challenge competition, this project has studied a new competition regulation, called Interactive Response System (IRS), including its Points Race regulation illustration, competition rules, and facilities for answering. Such a new regulation was studied with counties or cities, and announced on the activity website after revisions. From September 22, 2012 to November 03, 2012, local preliminary competitions were completed, and the number of total participants was 4,349.
In addition to assisting local preliminary competitions, this project also set a website for information integration and promotion of the competition, not only collecting information of local organizers, such as competitors lists, but also providing a complete competition information for the public through the website.
On the aspect of the review writing competition, the competition has attracted the public to participate through a ten-week prize draw activity from the beginning of the activity promotion on July 16. The final signed-up date is on October 31, 2012, attracting 555 people in four groups, elementary, junior high school, senior high school, and social groups, to distribute their writings. Evaluations were completed by experts on November 2012, and an award ceremony was held in Jhongjheng Hall, Gongguan Campus, NTNU, in December 8, 2012.
