DO YOU know an outstanding young person between the ages of 18 to 40 who you think deserves recognition for their achievements?

Junior Chamber International (JCI) Donegal is hosting an awards ceremony to celebrate those in the community, who have done something remarkable. Nominations to identify these outstanding young people in Donegal are now being sought from the public.


The Outstanding Young Person of the Year awards is a drive to identify young people for their dynamism and enthusiasm in their fields.
There is a local awards ceremony in which winners will receive a commemorative trophy and be recognised by their peers.

After the local awards, the winners may go on to be recognised nationally and possibly internationally for their achievements.
Every year, Junior Chamber International selects ten outstanding young people under 40 to be recognised for living the JCI Mission in extraordinary ways.

If you know someone you think should be nominated there are ten categories under which nominations can be made, relating to the fields of business; politics; academic achievements; culture; moral/environmental leadership; contribution to children/world peace/human rights; humanitarian/voluntary leadership; scientific/technological development; personal improvement/accomplishment; and medical innovation.

It is free to enter. Members of the public are now invited to take some time to show someone you admire that you respect what he/she does and believe his/her contribution should be recognised.

Nikki Bradley, President of JCI Donegalm said: “We hosted our inaugural awards last year, where seven outstanding young people were honoured with two of them also receiving recognition at the National awards ceremony in Limerick. We are excited to receive the nominations for this year’s awards and recognise the young people in Donegal.”

JCI feel, that highlighting the accomplishments of these young active citizens will inspire others to be better and realise their full potential as active citizens.

Send in your nominations now by emailing Ann-Louise at with their name and a short description of why you think they are outstanding or contact us through our Facebook page. Closing date for entries is, March 31.
