Entry and Judging Process

Rising Star Awards Kenya Entry & Judging Process:

  • We recommend that organisations put forward approximately 5 young people between the ages of 28 and 40.
  • Nominations can be submitted via the online form on the right sidebar and also on the form on the homepage – these must be received before the end of 15th February 2016.
  • Early submission is greatly appreciated.

After candidate submission, there will be three phases of judging:

  1. An initial assessment form to be completed by the candidate
  2. Should the candidate proceed to the semifinals, we will email additional forms to both the candidate and nominator
  3. Should the candidate reach the finals, they will be invited for an interview in front of a panel of experts on either the 10th or 11th April 2016. This will take 2-3 hours and will take place in Nairobi. If the candidate is unable to attend, the finalist position will be forfeited.*
    There will be 5 finalists in each of the 10 Industry categories – 50 in all – and these are the young people who form the Rising Star Network.
