For the founder of NBC David Sarnoff, the word ‘visionary’ meant a capacity to see into tomorrow and make it work.” Starting from 2004, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi has been engaging with the youth, who are successor generation and form the largest component of our population, through the Habitat Young Visionary Award competition.

This award carries a fully funded summer programme at Cambridge University and is awarded to a young voice that expresses the vision to build a society of their choice based on a theme that enables and urges the young minds to search their values and relate them to the future. The runner-up gets an internship at National Geographic Hong Kong.

The competition for the Habitat Young Visionary Award is open to students all over India who go through three rounds of rigorous participation, at the end of which the finalists are chosen to compete for the Award. Participants are required to write an essay on their specific vision, based on a theme that is provided each year. The theme for this year was “The Change I want to See, the Change I want to Make."

A committee of academic experts then evaluates these essays and selects the best ten from each zone - North & East and South & West. These semi-finalists are invited to present their vision in greater detail before a panel of judges comprising of well-known and eminent persons - journalists, bureaucrats, writers, politicians, policy-makers and achievers. This year, the semi-finals for North & East zones took place in India Habitat Centre, Delhi and for South & West zones in IIT Madras, Chennai. Three semi-finalists each from the two Semi-Finals - a total of six - were short-listed for the Finals, in which their vision was questioned in greater detail.

The grand finale for the Habitat Young Visionary Award 2010 was conducted at India Habitat Centre Lodhi Road New Delhi on 30 January 2010.

In the hotly contested finals, Rishika Das was declared winner for her presentation on Saving Lives of victims after natural disasters while Aayush Deora was declared runner-up for his presentation on Empowering India through Education.
