The award evaluation was carried out by the three independent judges of the 2015 Skål International Sustainable Tourism Awards. As usual, the scores given by each judge, to each project, are summed at the Secretariat. The project getting the highest score is declared winner in the respective category.
Unfortunately, the entry GREEN STEM submitted in the category of Community & Government Projects was not featured among the winners. However, Green Stem was awarded fairly high marks and was ranked third in the category, which is a really good achievement as there were nine entries competing.
The name of the judges and the winners will be announced during the Awards Ceremony that will take place in the frame of the Opening Ceremony of the 76th Skål World Congress on 29 October in Torremolinos, Spain.
