The awards will be given at three levels- District, State/Union Territory and National, he said, adding the participating schools will be accessed via an online portal and mobile app in 6 sub categories, where the system will generate their overall score and rating automatically.

The DC further urged the remaining schools to participate in this competition with full zeal and passion so that best practices adopted by these school managements could get acknowledged at the national arena.
