Applications invited for Joy Bangla Youth Award

Applications invited for Joy Bangla Youth Award

The fifth installment of the Joy Bangla Youth Award (JBYA) has called for entries from the youths and youth organisations that transformed communities through social initiatives, reports BSS.

The invitation for applications has commenced on September 24 and will wrap up on October 23, said the award’s organiser Young Bangla, the youth Secretariat of ruling Awami League’s research wing Centre for Research & Information (CRI).

The award is designed to recognise countrywide young changemakers, help them network among themselves and enhance the services they are already providing to their communities. Since its inception in 2014, Young Bangla has been conferring Joy Bangla Youth Award to the youths and youth organisations successfully involved in changing the social paradigm in their respective areas.

This year JBYA, named after the most iconic slogan behind the 1971-Liberation War of Bangladesh, Joy Bangla, features two new additions - an award conferring ceremony and lifetime achievement awards. Young Bangla will present Lifetime Achievement Awards to individuals who have significant contributions to the post-independent nation-building process through their leadership, service, initiatives, and research.

 There will be 10 awards under two broad categories - Social Inclusion and Integrated Community Development.
