The time has come to recognize the outstanding achievements of Madagascar’s youth. JCI Antananarivo is looking for the next Malagasy Outstanding Young person that will represent our country for the worldwide 2012 JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World (JCI TOYP).

JCI Antananarivo is confident that young people from Madagascar will be among the world’s top honorees.

Nominations are now open for 2012 JCI TOYP, recognizing the achievements of young people in different field of action. Below are the 10 categories where nominees can compete (one nominee can only run under one category)

  • Business, economic and/or entrepreneurial accomplishment
  • Political, legal and/or governmental affairs
  • Academic leadership and/or accomplishment
  • Cultural achievement
  • Moral and/or environmental leadership
  • Contribution to children, world peace and/or human rights
  • Humanitarian and/or voluntary leadership
  • Scientific and/or technological development
  • Personal improvement and/or accomplishment
  • Medical innovation

This is a chance for Malagasy Youth to shine all over the world through this inspirational international program. We know our exceptional youth can act as role models for other young people around the world.

The JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World (JCI TOYP) Program recognizes young people who excel in their chosen fields and exemplify the best attributes of the world’s young people. By recognizing these young people, JCI encourages them and others to seek excellence and serve others. This program is fully inline with JCI’s mission that is to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change. Then, better leaders will create better societies.

As a reminder, in 2009, one young Malagasy man named Firinga Johnson was nominated for the Ten Outstanding Young person of the World under the Humanitarian/Voluntary leadership category.


For this year, JCI Antananarivo aims to present young malagasy candidates aged between 18 and 40 to be nominated at the JCI TOYP: we highly encourage women to run for this competition.
