MOE didn't say much about the exact selection process:

MOE's Press Release: Edusave Character Award
3. Currently, there is a range of Edusave Awards that recognise outstanding students in each school, such as the Edusave Scholarship. However, these are primarily based on academic achievements. This is why we introduced the Edusave Character Award, and pegged it at the same level as the Edusave Scholarship. The objective is to send a clear and strong signal of the importance that MOE places on character and values, on par with achievements in the academic domain.

4. The Edusave Character Award will recognise a small number of students in each school who are exemplary in character, and who can inspire others as role models. For instance, these may be students who have shown resilience and have done well despite their difficult circumstances. The monetary award can be used by students for their educational needs, such as books and stationery.

5. Our school leaders and teachers are very mindful of the need to foster the intrinsic motivation of their students to do good deeds. Indeed, the building of character and inculcation of sound values are part of the important work that our schools do on a daily basis. Many schools have already devised their own ways of recognising good character and exemplary values in their students.
