The goal of the GenNext Leader Discovery Contest is to discover GenNext Leaders among the youth today. GenNext Leaders are very different from many ‘leaders’ we see today. They are individuals who combine character with capacity, values with effective action, and ideals with a practical mind. In short, GenNext Leaders have the potential to become global citizens and nation-builders of the 21st Century.
These are the very qualities that Swami Vivekananda wanted in the youth of today. The GenNext Leader Discovery Contest is organized as part of the 150th Birthday Celebrations of Swami Vivekananda. The GenNext Leader Discovery Contest aims to identify youth who have the qualities of a GenNext Leader in abundance and encourage each of them to manifest these qualities in all aspects of their lives.
Unlike most competitions which test your skills and talents (sports, music, academics, general knowledge etc.), the GenNext Leader Discovery Contest assesses your potential for becoming a GenNext Leader in the years to come. This means evaluating your mindsets, attitudes, approach to life, capacity to engage with others, and your willingness to commit yourself towards a larger purpose in your life.
