All members of the public are encouraged to put forward nominations for exceptional Caymanian youth.The Nomination Process consists of these steps:


  1. Persons (Nominators) who would like to make a nomination, must review all notices and then complete the online Nomination Form (which asks Nominator’s to include their own contact details; and contact details of their Nominee; along with a short justification of why they think this youth should be selected for the award.) These nominations are due as soon as possible, because Nominees will be asked to submit additional documents (to support their nomination form) by 29th September 2023 at 11:59PM.

  2. An automatic email is sent to the Nominee (upon submission of a Nomination Form). This email lets them know they have been nominated by an anonymous community member; and also asks them to submit additional documents as evidence to support your nomination. These documents are required to “complete a nomination” and must be submitted (by the youth) on/before their deadline of 29th September 2023 at 11:59PM.

  3. Once these documents are submitted, a Selection Committee reviews the nominations and will determine the 15 Proud of Them Honourees, along with the 2 Rising Stars. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.
