What is a Singapore Prize?
The singapore prize is an award given to people for something that they do well. The award can be anything from a lump sum of cash to a trip to a place where someone wants to go. There are also awards for music, art and other things that a person can do. If a person wants to win a singapore prize they will need to know how much money is available and what the rules are for winning.
The Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize celebrates cities for their efforts in building a liveable environment.

The prize aims to foster innovation in sustainable urban solutions by promoting thought-leadership and exchange of ideas between cities, which will benefit the wider global community.
