An alternative model styled as “Budget Olympiad” was developed to popularize the budget discourse among the young people.
Budget Olympiad is mainly a national level contest among young people and students to popularize and stimulate the national budgetary issue. After participating in contests at local level and regional level, the qualified participants gather at National level to take part for final event. The winners are awarded as budget campaigners to move onward with their knowledge and concerns of budget literacy.
The core objective of this olympiad is to mobilize and sensitize youth and students on the discussion of national budgetary issues and popular concerns around its planning process. The specific objectives are-
1. Engage youth agencies and academic institutions
to support initiatives for popularizing budget discourse and budget literacy
2. Develop a critical mass of youth and students who would act for budget democracy
