Proud of Them nominations close in a week

There is one week left before the nominations period closes for the Proud of Them award scheme.

The program recognizes outstanding young people who have excelled in the fields of academics, sports, their career, culture, business or community service.

The scheme, hosted by the Ministry of Youth and the National Youth Commission, each year highlights the achievements of 12 young people aged 10 to 25. Each recipient is awarded a certificate and stipend of $500 and is featured for a six month period on billboards across Grand Cayman.

The Proud of Them initiative began in 2012 to highlight youth doing good works. Since then, more than 60 young men and women have been recognized. Nominations close on July 8.
