JCI Malta is launching its Ten Outstanding Young Person (TOYP) Awards for 2021 and nominations are currently open. The nominees will be judged on their credentials by an international panel of distinguished judges as well as JCI Malta members. The ten winners will receive their award at the JCI Malta Gala & Awards Night in December.
People between the ages of 18 and 40 may be anonymously nominated in one of the following ten categories – Academic Leadership and/or Accomplishment, Business, Economic and/or Entrepreneurial Accomplishment, Contribution to World Peace and/or Human Rights, Cultural Achievement, Humanitarian and/or Voluntary Leadership, Medical Innovation, Environmental Leadership, Journalistic Accomplishment, Political, Legal and/or Governmental Affairs, and Scientific and/or Technological Development.
The ten chosen local honourees will then be nominated for the international JCI TOYP Awards with the chance of becoming one of the most Outstanding Young People in the World during the JCI World Congress 2022 in South Korea.
If you know of anyone, or even more than one person, who deserves to be nominated, log on to www.jci.org.mt/toyp and tell us who and why they are worthy of being a TOYP nominee. All nominations are submitted anonymously. The deadline for nominations is the 30th June, 2021.
Since 1983, JCI has honoured more than 300 individuals from 57 nations. Past recipients of national TOYP awards include well-known personalities such as John F. Kennedy, Henry Kissinger, Elvis Presley, Jackie Chan, Wayne Gretzky and many more, all honoured before the age of 40 and before they had achieved national prominence. Honourees selected in past years have represented the heights of progress in numerous human endeavours; many have gone on to even greater achievements. All have continued to serve humanity and create impact in a variety of ways.
