They were given a specific timeframe to produce videos addressing the issue of microplastics in their surroundings, and their work was uploaded to the Google Drive links provided by the organizers.
Video evaluations were conducted by a panel of judges, and the winners for each category were announced on the official website https://imbc.upm.edu.my/minggu-sains-negara.
