Junior Chamber International (JCI) Botswana has announced the 2012 Ten Outstanding Young Persons (TOYP) Honourees for JCI Botswana.
The JCI TOYP Program recognizes young people who excel in their chosen fields and exemplify the best attributes of the world’s young people.
The national competition was operated as part of a global program of JCI, a worldwide community of nearly 200,000 young active citizens between ages 18 and 40 who are dedicated to creating the positive change they wish to see in themselves and the world.
JCI Botswana is one of the more than 100 National Organisations of JCI.
“JCI has confidence in all the seven entrants for they are outstanding and of good caliber,” said Ngwatshi Enyatseeng, the national director at JCI.
Individuals can be nominated in one of ten categories ranging from business accomplishments and humanitarian efforts to outstanding leadership, medical and cultural achievements.
Honourees for Botswana include Moshe Seloko, Keneilwe Moseki, Lepang Ferguson, Bogolo Kenewendo, Shirley Keoagile, Tebogo Lebotse, Molefe Nkwete, Tirelo Ramasedi, Linda Rebakgosi and Tsotso Ngele.
To commemorate the accomplishments of these honourees, JCI Botswana awards ceremony will be held on the 1st September 2012 in Gaborone.
“This ceremony not only celebrates the accomplishments of these honourees, but also serves as a forum where professionals can establish valuable business contacts with young entrepreneurs and other business leaders also present,” said Mogapi the JCI President.
Meanwhile Keneilwe Moseki has gone on to compete in the Top 20 semi-final for the international title. Up to 10 International Honourees will be chosen from all entries worldwide and will be invited to travel to the JCI World Congress in Taipei, Taiwan, in November where the Top Ten will be awarded at a formal awards ceremony.
