JCI Malta believes in recognising the work of outstanding young people who work hard to improve their community and society.

It’s time again to nominate the Ten Outstanding Young People (TOYP) of Malta.

Nominees must be based in Malta, aged 18-40, and their work must fit within one of the below categories. Please ensure that you have their correct contact details when nominating them as we will need to contact all nominees. 

Once the nomination period is over, the public will have the chance to vote for their favourite nominee in each category. The Ten Outstanding Young People will be recognised at the JCI Malta Gala and Awards night in December 2022.

Awards History

About TOYP

Since 1983, JCI has honoured 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 10 honourees out of all the nominees are then selected by an international panel of distinguished judges and by votes from the public. The 10 chosen local honourees will then be nominated for the international JCI TOYP with the chance of being recognised as one of the most outstanding young people in the world during an international JCI World Congress.
