    The Actizen® Contest is a mission to create and unite alert, informed and active young citizens for a better India.

    To make participative democracy exciting, we created the two-phase, inter-school Actizen® contest for students between grades seven and nine.

    The contest is designed to act as a catalyst that kickstarts imaginations on how to solve the big issues, and sparks community-level action to tackle these issues head on.

    Student participation is the driving force behind the Actizen® contest, but the parents, teachers and school principals that support them are equally important.
