Unilab Ideas Positive is a program where Unilab Philippines challenges the youth to find solutions to emerging and recurring health and wellness issues in communities. These issues are related to hygiene and sanitation, nutrition, disease prevention and intervention, and environmental care and protection.
Last year, Team Bigkas of University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) bagged the grand prize for its farm-in-the-city concept, teaching hydroponics gardening to mothers in Barangay San Joaquin in Pasig City so they have their own sustainable source of vegetables within the community. Mothers made their first harvest of lettuce and kangkong in April this year.
This year, 11 teams were selected as semi-finalists out of 56 entries from over 20 schools in NCR, Camanava, and Calabarzon. The 11 teams will further be narrowed down to 3 finalists, one of which will take home the grand prize of P250,000 as seed money to jumpstart their project.
One of the criteria for choosing the Top Three finalists is Impact, which is quantified by the number of votes a group receives based on their videos located at http://www.unilabideaspositive.com/videos.html
