6th ISKANDAR MALAYSIA SOCIAL HERO AWARDS (IMSHA2019)  | The 6th Iskandar Malaysia Social Hero Awards (IMSHA 2019) gala banquet was held at Pulai Springs Resort’s Dewan Kenchanapuri on 17th October 2019.

It was graced by His Highness Tunku Idris Iskandar Al-Haj Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Tunku Temenggong Johor. The IMSHA is an annual community-led initiative driven by The Iskandarian publication and Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA).

Its aim is to spot, recognise, and support the good work done by the community’s unsung social heroes. Now in its 6th year, IMSHA is the region’s premier recognition award for individuals and organisations engaging in community service.

A total of 20 award winners were acknowledged in 11 categories today-ten for individuals, nine for CSO/NGOs and one company in the CSR category. The 11 categories of the much-coveted awards are (applicable to individual or organisational nomination) Animal & Wildlife Protection, Disaster Relief, Public Safety, Education Advancement, Environmental Preservation/Protection, Health Services, Human Empowerment, Poverty & Hunger Relief, Corporate Social Responsibility, Social Innovator, and Arts, Culture & Heritage.

This year, the bar had been raised even higher as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were included as part of the scoring criteria. Earlier this year, IMSHA teamed up with the United Nations Country Team Malaysia to align the awards to the UN’s global goals and the 2030 Agenda.

IMSHA is now recognised as a “Good Practice SDG Award Provider” by the United Nations Country Team Malaysia. “IMSHA aims to recog nise Civil Society Organisations (CSO), Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Faith-Based Organisations (FBO), Corporations and Individuals for the exemplary work they do in serving the needs of our community. Through the awards, we hope to shine the spotlight on the value of volunteerism, and the need for all to share the responsibility of working towards a more inclusive, compassionate and effective society,” said IMSHA Chairman Mrs Thanam Visvanathan - Suresh.

The award recipients were drawn from among the 301 nominations received from the public this year. The nominees were assessed against a Social Impact Rating System, which in turn was monitored by SIRIM.

This year, an additional layer of complexity was added to the judging, whereby the contribution of the nominees also had to fulfil either one of the seventeen SDGs as part of the scoring. The shortlisted candidates were presented to a panel of seven judges known as the Leadership Council, who then sele cted the final winners. “Our comprehensive scoring system, which selectively measures performance across a range of indicators, ensures that the chosen winners are truly deserving. It cannot be over-emphasised that the IMSHA is an award that cannot be bo ught,” added Mrs Thanam.

IMSHA 2019 was sponsored by Visionary Sponsors Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor (KPRJ) and Maslee Express; Advocate Sponsors AME Development Sdn Bhd; and Builder Sponsors Iskandar Investment Berhad and The Pasar; with Pulai Springs Resort as the official venue.
