Two Republic Polytechnic (RP) teams from the School of Management Communication (SMC) and School of Applied Science (SAS) participated in the “A day in the life of an ES Professional” video contest.

This contest was organised by Karcher Singapore in conjunction with the second Thank Your Cleaner Day campaign. The objective of the Thank Your Cleaner Day campaign was to improve public outreach and education about the environmental services industry. This campaign was supported by NEA and EMAS (Environmental Management Association of Singapore).

Five video entries from Republic Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic and Nanyang Polytechnic were selected for the finals, and a public poll was conducted on Karcher Singapore’s Facebook page from 8 November 2019, 9 pm to 18 November, 11.59 pm. The final results were based on the public's votes. Both RP teams received the most number of votes to receive the top two prizes.

The winning video was submitted by three Year 2 Diploma in Mass Communication students - Sng Kai Ting Emily, Law Jia Yi Evan and Siti Nursyakilla bte Salim, and led by SMC lecturer, Chan Wai Hoe. The students won $1,500 cash and received their prize from the President of Singapore at a ceremony held at the Istana on 7 December 2019.
