GhanaWeb Excellence Awards: Nominees for Youth Edition to be announced on Nov. 18

After weeks of perusing the numerous nominations filed by the public for this year’s GhanaWeb Excellence Awards, organisers of the prestigious scheme are set to unveil the list of nominees on Friday, November 18.

Dubbed ‘The Youth Edition’ and themed ‘The Future is Now’, this year’s is highly youth-centred as it seeks to reward the youth who have played instrumental roles in various capacities. The nominees for the sixteen categories covering all facets of the Ghanaian society are persons from age 15 to age 35.

Having received hundreds of nominations for each category and handed with the responsibility of thoroughly reviewing and shortlisting to five persons for every category, the board has described the process as competitive and is looking forward to witnessing a successful second edition. 

“It has been interesting working on the nominees that came through for this year’s award. I must say the Board did not have an easy task due to the calibre of persons nominated by virtue of the things they have put out,” said Edward Smith, Chairman of the Board.   

“I must also say for us, it was a good time to get to learn a new thing about some of the people nominated and we have done a lot of detailed analysis to come up with the final list.”

The GhanaWeb Excellence Awards is an annual people’s choice award scheme launched to offer GhanaWeb audiences and the general public the opportunity to recognise outstanding Ghanaians who have helped in the development of the country.

This is the first-ever audience-powered award scheme organised by an online media platform in Ghana to celebrate role models and future leaders who would inspire Ghanaian communities and make the country a better place to live in.

The unveiling of the list of nominees for the Youth Edition will be livestreamed on GhanaWeb TV.
