Solomons Deputy PM launches youth awards

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Rural and Indigenous Affairs Fred Fono last night launched the inaugural Solomon Islands National Youth Awards during the final of the Solo Idol on Sunday night.

And nominations are now open for public to nominate candidates for the awards.

The awards will be for young men and women between 15 to 29 years years old who have demonstrated excellence in the field of sport, music, art, community work and leadership, service and innovation, environment, business, differently abled and life rehabilitation.

Winners are expected to be announced January next year.

Meanwhile, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Women, Youth and Children Affairs Ethel Sigimanu says these awards are an opportunity to honour achievements of many hard working young people in school, at work and in communities.

Mrs Sigimanu hopes award winners will inspire other young people to be actively involved in their communities.
