Wexford Chamber looking to recognise outstanding people

Outstanding people from Wexford across business, political, academia and humanitarian spheres could receive a top award.

Junior Chamber International (JCI) Ireland, in association with AIB, have launched a nationwide search to find the top 10 outstanding young people in Ireland.

The Ten Outstanding Young People (TOYP) awards, is a global initiative that identifies innovative, extraordinary and dedicated young people.

There are ten categories to choose from: Business, economic, and/or entrepreneurial accomplishment; Political, legal, and/or governmental affairs; Academic leadership and/or accomplishment; Cultural achievement; Moral and/or environmental leadership; Contribution to children, world peace, and/or human rights; Humanitarian and/or voluntary leadership; Scientific and/or technological development; Personal improvement and/or accomplishment; Medical innovation

Local chamber branches will choose their top four nominees to send forward to the National TOYP Awards which will be celebrated on May 18.

The TOYP national winners will represent Ireland at the JCI World Congress in Estonia.

Members of the public can now nominate a young person between 18 and 40 who deserves to be highlighted and rewarded for their outstanding achievements. Go to JCIIreland.ie, click on Ten Outstanding Young Persons and fill out a very short nomination form. Entries close on Monday , March 4.
