The panel of judges were also tasked with the responsibility of selecting at least 3 individuals who have displayed great commitment to certain developmental causes and achieved outstanding feats in the CSO sector for a special award category named the “FCS Directors’ Award”. The panel conducted research and came up with three which were submitted to the board of directors of FCS who reviewed and endorsed the panel’s recommendations.

In addition to the scoring criteria, the nominees were also judged based on individual traits and efforts. The criteria for this award therefore sought answers to three additional questions:

  1. To what extent has the individual displayed passion to the cause?
  2. Is the individual empowering others to create a ripple effect?
  3. Has the individual taken a vocal platform to advocate for the cause?

The awardee will be announced on November 8, 2019 during the CSO Week Gala Dinner.
