Prizes and recognition

Entries will be posted on the competition website and are subject to online commenting and public voting. Ten finalists in Youth (idea & project) and Adult (idea & project) categories will be determined according to votes and the Personal Activity Indicator algorithm.
Finalists are requested to submit a video of their idea/project if they have not done so yet. The video can be a maximum of 3 minutes long, longer videos cannot be considered!

From among the finalists, the judges will make the final selection of three winners (Grand Prize, 2nd Prize, and 3rd Prize) in each category. Entries will be evaluated based on their entrepreneurial vision, feasibility, innovation, leadership, social impact, and sustainability, among other factors. The People’s Choice is awarded to the participant with the most votes, across both categories. They are automatically among the finalists.


Grand Prize winners will receive a virtual Gold Badge and a Certificate.

Second Prize winners will receive a virtual Silver Badge and a Certificate.

Third Prize winners will receive a virtual Bronze Badge and a Certificate.

People’s Choice Prize winners will receive a virtual Gold Badge and a Certificate.

Finalists not chosen as prize winners will receive an Honorable Mention Badge.

Grand Prize, Second Prize, Third Prize, and People’s Choice were made public at the virtual Announcement Ceremony on 10 December 2022.
