The challenge encourages students to share proposals and designs to improve sanitation process in Warangal, a historical town in Telangana famous for its ancient architecture and rich cultural heritage and get recognised and win cash prizes. 

Students or recent graduates (upto 2 years) are invited to submit a disruptive idea to contribute to making Warangal Swachh and Smart.
