Inviting Your Next Big Social Idea

Event Details

Event's Format

In a nation of a billion people, there is no dearth of ideas. However, when it comes to a common platform for expressing them, there is a lot to be desired. Through our event Samarth, we aim at connecting students capable of adding value to the society through little thoughts of kindness and innovation that can make life a lot easier.

Round 1:

Participants will be required to send in a pdf file highlighting their big social idea in a report spanning less than 500 words. The idea can be based on any prevalent issues in the society today. Creativity and feasibility of the idea will be the sole criteria for shortlisting the submission for the next round. The ideas should ideally focus on these specifics in particular.

Round 2:
In the second round, the shortlisted participants will be asked to present a report on their idea elaborating its course of action and the benefits it can bring to society. The report will be analyzed on the parameters taken into account, the feasibility and the innovativeness.

Round 3:
The final round will be held at IIT Delhi. The shortlisted finalists will be required to be present on campus on a given date between 16 to 18th February which will be conveyed to them at a later point. They will be asked to present their ideas before an eminent panel of judges who will be evaluating them.

  • The judges' decision will be final and binding.
  • DMS, IIT Delhi will hold all the rights to the conduct of the competition and ideas submitted. Any modification or change may be made at a later point by the institute if the situation demands.
  • Plagiarism is strongly discouraged. The applicant will solely be responsible for his/her work and DMS, IIT Delhi reserves all the rights to withdraw his/her participation at any point in time.
