SoCh in Action says a great big THANK YOU to our Judging Panel

A big part of the Be the Changes Exposition – ‘I CAN’ Shape the Future is the opportunity to showcase and engage with our DFC school challenge submission. It is an opportunity to learn and be inspired by the creativity and vision of our young people.

Singapore is small and unique in many ways. Hence the challenges we face are also different compared to a lot of other countries around the world Design for Change program offers an international panel of judges, however we prefer to have local judging panel who would understand our children's work and efforts better. This local judging panel is only possible because of the commitment and voluntary efforts of our fabulous judges.

Please meet the judges who have been inspired by all the DFC submissions and have chosen to support us through their own work and by actively supporting SoCh in making our children say 'I CAN' be the Change!
