The quest to recognise the Ten Outstanding Young Persons in Sri Lanka has commenced, providing a platform for the youth to showcase expertise in their respective fields. The launch of the Ten Outstanding Young Persons Award (TOYP) 2015 was officially announced at a press briefing held recently and it is an initiative by the Junior Chamber International Sri Lanka (JCI Sri Lanka) which was launched in 1980 to recognise the talents and achievements of the youth in the island. 

Speaking at the press, Project Chairman Isuru Samarage said TOYP is a search to find 10 people who have excelled in 10 different avenues of service. “It provides a platform for young enthusiasts to get an exposure to the international arena. Therefore, those recognised locally will get an opportunity to attend the TOYP international ceremony which will be held overseas. Many popular personalities have been entitled to this award and over the years there have been over 300 winners recognised in different categories. Nominations can be sent in until September 30, 2015 and the awards ceremony is scheduled to be held on October 14, 2015. This year is a special year for JCI as we celebrate 100 years of service and therefore we are planning to put up the event in a grand scale.”
