It is actually a very big task as we receive hundreds of student’s nomination in each category from those desirous of getting selected for the awards. Each one is equally deserving and verifying the nominations and reviewing their activities and claims is a very detailed process. Now the final Award was selected by a jury that sat on 20th January.” Informs Bhavna Pandey, “On the basis of parameters set which included proof of mark sheets, certificates in various school, Inter-School, state level, national and international achievements final five students were shortlisted in each category.

Scores were given based on achievements, and personal interview.” The jury then after detailed discussion and deliberations decided the final winners and sealed the envelope. The jury took the decision in an unbiased and transparent manner and Dwarka City had no say in their final decisions.
