National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA)
The National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) is one of the premier youth development programmes in Singapore. The aim of the NYAA Programme is to encourage students to develop personal qualities of self-reliance, perseverance and a sense of responsibility to themselves, to society and to the nation.
The criteria for an award are those of self-improvement and effort as participants are judged on personal achievement measured against original circumstances and potential capabilities. This allows students to participate on an equal opportunity basis.
In Evergreen Secondary School, the NYAA programme is carefully aligned to the school’s strategic thrusts. This enables the leveraging on the existing rich and vibrant school activities and programmes to fulfil the requirements of the NYAA.
