Nominations will be assessed across three criteria:
- Reach – what is the extent of the benefits of the nominees’ contributions for the affected groups/individuals? How were they affected? Have the benefits reached others? Have the benefits been of a lasting nature?
- Impact – The depth of the nominee’s contribution. Has the work of the nominee had an impact on priority areas/theme in their community? Have they made a lasting difference in the community? What has been put into place to ensure the nominee’s contribution will last when the nominee is no longer involved?
- Inspiration – How did the nominee became a role model in their community? How is the knowledge of the nominees work inspiring others? How did the nominee communicate and share their experience?
