Ten Outstanding Young People (TOYP) Awards
Outstanding young people that work hard for the betterment of their societies deserve every drop of recognition. For this reason, JCI Malta will be running the Ten Outstanding Young People of Malta (TOYP) Awards whereby it will aim to celebrate young people working in all sectors of society.
TOYP Award Sponsors
Since 1983, JCI has honored more than 300 individuals from 57 nations. Past recipients of national TOYP awards include such 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 great variety of ways.
Young men and women between the ages of 18 and 40 may be nominated in one of ten categories. The top ten honourees are selected each by an international panel of distinguished judges. Up to ten honourees will be selected from all nominations received, regardless of category entered. The 10 chosen local honourees will then be nominated for the JCI TOYP with the chance of becoming one of the most outstanding young people in the world later on during a ceremony in Yokohama Japan.
