Experts Panel Screening
Judges' Portal

We are glad to have you in our Experts Screening Panel! This year, the Search gathered hundreds of entries nationwide in its call for projects. The TAYO Secretariat filtered those into 60 Validation Interviewees which were then further scrutinized to our top 38 Experts Screening Qualifiers.

As screeners, we invite you to provide insight in our process of selecting our National Finalists. We would also like to ask for your utmost discretion by keeping this microsite, the files herein, and the conversations during the panel screening, private and remain confidential among our colleagues in the panel.

We welcome any collaboration or mentorship you wish to extend to our Experts Screening Qualifiers. In case you have limited bandwidth, you may leave your notes and comments in your scoresheet, and we will surely include them in our mentorship sessions.



What should I prepare for the Screening?

This microsite is our one-stop shop for our Screening Requirements. We ask that you run through the Qualifiers' Briefers and watch through their Presentations before our synchronous Q&A and deliberations on July 8 or 9, whichever you are scheduled to join the panel. Feel free to also score the entries while doing so.


At the backend, we would also like to request you to fill up this form, if you haven't already, for some preliminary arrangements the Secretariat will put into place.


What will I do for the Screening?

We ask that you look over and screen the entries based on our Search Criteria. Coupled with your expertise in the field, including your track in development, we are confident you can share valuable insights.


In our synchronous Q&A and Deliberations, we are opening a short window of 5 minutes for panelists to ask some questions to our Qualifiers, you may visit the program flow here. Knowing that it might be too short for everyone to ask questions, we ask that if ever you have questions prior to the Experts Panel Screening, please write them in your scoresheets so we can be notified of any.


What should I expect for the Screening

Expect hearing different depths and scales from various youth projects. Each with a unique take on certain advocacies, they might not fit right into your wheelhouse, but we hope you still screen and these entries with an eye of hope and expectation for our young Filipinos.

Their 5-minute Question and Answer Window will be fast - no pressure to ask questions.


What are the dates I need to remember?

July 1 - Launching of pre-recorded presentations that you can access here.

July 8 -  Synchronous Question & Answer and Panel Deliberations for Luzon & NCR

July 9 - Synchronous Question & Answer and Panel Deliberations for Visayas & Mindanao.


When can I post about my involvement?

You may post about your part in the Panel after the Experts Panel Screening on July 8 or 9. One of our tokens of appreciation is by releasing a card on July 12 on who the members of the Experts Panel Screening. 

We only request that all files and conversations shared be kept among colleagues and friends in the panel. Sharing of results is restricted until AFTER official announcements are made by the Secretariat on July 12, Friday.


Can I reach out to any Semi-Finalist?

Before and during the Screening process, which is  today until July 9, 2023, we ask you NOT TO REACH OUT to the Qualifiers.

Should you wish to partner or connect with the organizations after reading about their project or advocacy, we would be glad to connect you with them AFTER the announcement on July 13.

However, if you have questions on their projects submitted to the Search, please reach out to the Secretariat, or write them in your scoresheets.
