share on:

The Central Working Committee for The Future Awards, which is going Africa-wide this season, has announced that nominations for the 8th season comes to a close come Sunday, June 16, 2013.

“Nominations for The Future Awards Season 8 has been open for about a month and so far we have received thousands of entries from young and inspiring Nigerians with amazing innovations and works,” said Chude Jideonwo, who is executive director of The Future Project. “Following our calendar, our board of highly experienced judges are going to undergo sessions of intense decision making to certify persons who will make it into the nominations list that will be published in June.”

The awards are judged over a two-month period, supervised by a central working committee, a board of judges and an independent audit committee – an 8-year rigorous process with checks and balances that has produced many of Nigeria’s most prominent young leaders in the past decade.

This edition is hosted in partnership with the youth office of the African Union Commission, based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and nominations for the awards’ biggest prize, Young Person of the Year to be Africa-based.

  1. The future award is a great initiative that encourages young people but there should be award for others between the ages of 35years to 46years, that are in government or public/private sector that have contributed to the development of their country and impacted lives too.
