After the show, the 2019 Search for Sustainable and Eco-friendly School was promoted. The objective of the search was discussed with the teachers from the six schools. Atleast three of the five schools present mentioned that they have already heard the search and have started doing some of its features like Gulayan sa Paaralan, waste segregation as well as beautification program of the school.
Q& A portion of the celebration was not only intended to gauge the level of comprehension of the students on the different programs on the protection of the environment but also as means to instill into their hearts, mind and convert into a concrete action whatever learning they gained from the show. As a gesture of appreciation to the active participation of the students and teachers, trivial gifts like planner, tumbler from Manila Water and IEC materials were handed to the winners .
