JCI Ireland is looking for individuals who have contributed to society to be nominated in the various categories in its Ten Outstanding Young Person (TOYP ) Awards programme. The competition is open to all between the ages of 18 and 40 who may be nominated in one of 10 categories and nominations close this weekend.
The top 10 honourees will be selected by an international panel of distinguished judges and will receive their award at the JCI Ireland Presidents’ Day ceremony in May 2021. Furthermore, the 10 chosen national 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 an international ceremony in Johannesburg, South Africa in November 2021.
JCI Ireland Ten Outstanding Young Person (TOYP ) Awards programme is supported by The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth and also sponsored by Huawei this year.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, National President of JCI Ireland, Carol Ho said that, the TOYP programme has the potential to unearth hidden talents within our local communities.
“People who have worked relentlessly without expecting anything in return for the betterment of the community, its people and the whole world eventually. We at JCI are just playing a small role in recognising these efforts, so that these success stories may serve as an inspiration to the next generation of high performing individuals’.
The entire project team calls upon the residents of Ireland to nominate young people within their network and acquaintances who have served their community so that their efforts can be recognised.
