Nominate a young achiever

The event seeks to honour young Ekurhuleni achievers in various fields.

The City of Ekurhuleni and mayor Clr Mzwandile Masina, in partnership with Inside Education, are calling for nominations of outstanding young achievers as part of the 100 Ekurhuleni Shining Stars 2018 programme.

This provides a unique opportunity for young people in Ekurhuleni to reflect on Madiba’s and Mama Albertina Sisulu’s lives and times in order to promote their legacy as they would have both turned 100 this year.

During his tenure as president, Nelson Mandela said: “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”

The event seeks to honour young Ekurhuleni achievers in various fields, particularly those contributing to economic growth, community upliftment and job creation.

These under-35s should be hugely talented individuals who have shown great promise in their chosen fields.

They must also be game-changers and natural born leaders doing great things to transform their communities.

The 100 Ekurhuleni Shining Stars 2018 winners will be announced at a breakfast awards event, hosted by Masina and Ekurhuleni city manager Dr Imogen Mshazi, at Emperors Palace on December 7.

There are grand prizes up for grabs.

Those nominated should be innovative and inspire viable ways to shape Ekurhuleni’s future outlook and the people who live in the region.

Any person or organisation in Ekurhuleni may nominate a young person who is considered an achiever.

Nomination forms and other information can be found online at www.insideeducation.org and www.ekurhuleni.gov.za or on Facebook (Inside Education) and Twitter (@Inside_Edu).

The deadline for submissions is November 26.
