National Youth Council to Recognize the Youths Contributions
The Krazy Koconuts will come alive from 6pm on Saturday May 25th 2013, as it is the venue for the 2013 National Youth Awards, an event organized by the National Youth Council of Dominica.
President of the National Youth Council of Dominica, Ms. Fenella Wenham stated, the annual event now in its 8th year, is a way of recognizing the contribution of the youth in various areas.
“It is appropriate that the National Youth Council of Dominica show appreciation for the young people, as there are many who devote their time and energy towards nation building,” said Ms. Wenham.
She noted, it is also a way of motivating the youth who would not venture into positive activities.
At the show, 15 young persons will be awarded for the various contributions they have been making in their community and country.
This year, the Academic and Extra Curricular Award have been combined, so the deserving individual receiving the award, will have to be a true ‘all-rounder’ in every sense.
The Visual and Performing Arts Award has been sub-divided into; Music, Literacy, Drama and Dance.
Ms. Wenham says, the Council is aware of the many positive young people in Dominica, despite the few who engage in negative activities.
She is urging young people and adults, who are interested in mentoring other individuals to lend their time and services to the Council, to aid those who have gone astray in our communities, as they need positive role models.
