'Transform Maharashtra' is a unique initiative led by Hon'ble Chief Minister Shri Devendra Fadnavis as a part of his efforts to engage the youth of the state in governance and create a road-map for developed Maharashtra by 2025. It is a competition that invited solutions from college students across state to the 11 gravest challenges faced by Maharashtra. The Competition was launched by the Chief Minister in December 2016 in IIT Bombay's Mood Indigo festival. The competition has touched around 4,00,000 people (including 15,000 participants) so far.
The solutions received from the students were judged for two exclusive categories of prizes – ‘Judges’ Choice’ and ‘Popular Choice’. To select entries for Judge’s Choice prizes (specific for each theme), industry experts in relation to different themes were brought on board. The Popular Choice Prizes (specific for each theme) were selected on the basis of the online voting that created quite a buzz on the internet with more than 6 lakhs votes cast.
