New date for national youth awards
The Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs wishes to announce the postponement of the 2018 National Youth Awards ceremony which was originally carded for Sunday 12th August, 2018. The Ministry has decided that the rescheduling of the Awards ceremony is in the best interest of all stakeholders since some applicants were unable to meet the previous deadline. As such, nominations will remain open until Friday 17th August, 2018 to create room for more submissions in all categories.
Persons are therefore encouraged to submit nominations to the Ministry’s head office located at No. 2 Elizabeth Street, St. Clair, Port of Spain or to one of its Facilities or via the website at www.msya.gov.tt. Kindly note that persons who have already submitted are not required to re-submit as existing nominations are still valid.
The National Youth Awards celebrates young people who have demonstrated excellence in several categories, including Agriculture, Arts and Culture, Entrepreneurship, Information Technology, Media and Youth Activism. The Awards ceremony will now take place on Saturday 8th September, 2018 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Hyatt Regency Hotel, #1 Wrightson Road, Port of Spain.
The Ministry offers sincerest apologies to its stakeholders as it continues to strive to promote and improve youth development and sporting excellence in Trinidad and Tobago.
