Back for the fifth year, CDL-Singapore Compact Young Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Leaders Award is a youth case competition which aims to promote thought leadership amongst our future leaders to foster greater awareness of embracing CSR principles into a company’s daily operations.
Open to participants between the ages of 17 and 30 years of age, this competition is a cross-sector partnership between CDL and Singapore Compact for CSR. It is aimed at educating and promoting CSR amongst our future leaders about corporate, social and environmental challenges of today, and the importance of weaving CSR principles into the fabric of any organisation.

Youth engagement is an important aspect of Singapore Compact’s work of promoting CSR adoption. Since 2010, it has partnered CDL for the Young CSR Leader’s Award, a CSR student case-study competition that provides opportunities for youths to have a taste of putting CSR concepts into practice by proposing feasible CSR strategies for companies.
The fourth edition of the competition attracted a total of 50 team entries from various educational institutes in Singapore this year, making it the largest number of entries ever received in the four years the competitions were organised. The top three prizes were awarded to three teams with the most refreshing and practical CSR ideas.
