As the conveners of the National Youth Achievement Awards (NYAA) prepare to host the maiden edition in October, the Jury of the scheme have began sitting through the arduous task of selecting winners for the over 50 different categories.
The Jury is responsible for sorting through all entries submitted and short listing entries based on specific criteria and then finally selecting the winners for this year. When the jury feels that there are no applications that merit an award for a particular category in the year, no award will be given in that category, regardless of the number of applications.
The Jury consists of very reputable ladies and gentlemen from government sector, accomplished individuals in relevant sectors, researchers and the official statistician for the scheme is Price Waterhouse Coopers.
The Jury of NYAA is made up of: Mr. Emmanuel Dei Tumi, Prof Robert E. Hinson, Ms. Dorothy Gordon, Mr. Moses Foh ? Amoaning, Mr. Mike Agyekum Addo, Prof. Emmanuel K Larbi, Mr. David Afugani, Mr. Alhassan Andani, Prof Atukwei Okai and Ms. Esther Cobbah
Some relevant topics which will be discussed at the Show are ?Walking tall into the future ? how to achieve success either as an employee or employer? and ?Generation Next ? the role of the youth in national development?
This Road Show will be followed by the Job Fair 2012 and the Awards night. The National Youth Achievers Awards are meant to encourage and garner as broad as broad participation as possible without placing any limitations on applications. The awards will be given to those who have proven their outstanding achievements in categories being awarded.
