FUTURE LEADERS: The Prime Minister’s Youth Awards for Excellence, traditionally handed out in December, will be hosted on Sunday, March 24 inside the Emancipation Park. The open-to-the-public function, which annual honours outstanding young Jamaican men and women, will commence at 4:00 pm. This year’s staging of the awards is being held under the theme “Youth on a Mission…Project 2062”. PM Portia Simpson Miller says the youth awards programme is an excellent avenue to motivate and inspire Jamaica's young people to achieve while honouring and recognizing those who have made their mark in their respective fields. The annual awards recognizes young Jamaicans (between 15 and 24 years of age) who have contributed to the nation’s development and who have excelled in various areas, including sport, international achievement, academics, leadership, arts and culture, journalism, youth in service, entrepreneurship and agriculture.
