Plan India Impact Awards 2018

Plan India Impact Awards 2018 "Plan India Impact Awards celebrate the last mile champions"

Plan India Impact Awards is a Plan India initiative to celebrate the exemplary work of community Frontline Workers and volunteers in helping achieve national development priorities.

Building on the first ever Plan India Impact Awards in 2017, this year’s edition seeks to nationally recognise the efforts of outstanding functionaries, highlight the best practices and reinforce their contributions as a primary source of support in the field.

Partnering and inspiring us on this journey are the Frontline Workers and Community Volunteers who reach the most vulnerable and affect remarkable change in the uptake and delivery of much needed services at the village, district, state and national level.

The Plan India Impact Awards is a one of a kind platform in India that recognises and awards grassroot champions that have battled the odds to be champions of change in society.

Gracing the occasion will be our esteemed Chief Guests Mr. Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog and Ms. Shabana Azmi, veteran actress and social activist.

The Process

The Plan India Impact Awards 2018 is a comprehensive two months process that includes a series of stages:

  • Stage 1: Partner Nominations – Partners from 22 Plan India intervention states send their best nominations for each category
  • Stage 2: Knowledge Partner Review – PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) (process advisor) randomly selects some of the intervention districts/states for ‘hygiene checks’ to validate that the process has been conducted in a free and fair manner. A parallel sample check for submitted nomination forms will also be conducted to ensure that they have been appropriately filled.
  • Stage 3: Regional Jury Deliberation – Will be convened in three regions: North (New Delhi), South (Hyderabad), East and North East (Bhubaneswar) to identify one outstanding nominee from each region for each category.
  • Stage 4: National Jury Selection – Will review top three nominations for each category. Based on the evaluation criteria provided by PwC, 1 national level winner from each of the seven categories will be determined.
