The award is in stages which shall see many people drop before the finalists emerge. The awards take applications from a wide range of people who are interested in developing themselves and becoming the better versions of themselves.

Before applying, you must check the eligibility tab to ensure that you’re eligible for the award. This will help you know whether your application will be considered or not.
After the application stage, the process will move to the review stage where your application will be evaluated, and following the review stage, the finalists will be chosen.
