Gov’t committed to amplifying youth excellence

May 28, 2024

Government is committed to amplifying the excellence of youth in Barbados by spearheading programmes to reward their positive efforts.

This is from Minister of Youth Sports and Community Empowerment, Charles Griffith.

He spoke during the National Youth Awards ceremony at the Frank Collymore Hall where 119 young people in various categories were rewarded for their works of excellence.

There the youth showcased their skills in singing, musical skills and spoken words.

In addition to the celebration of excellence, there were also a number of special acknowledgement awards.

Among the especially mentioned awardees for her resilience and courage was bilateral amputee Rashonte Parsons.

Minister Griffith says far too often people like to stay on the sidelines and criticise and not get involved in highlighting the contributions of youth many of whom are crying out for our support.

International author and professional motivational speaker Kristen Greaves encouraged the young awardees to dare to dream bigger, get better and strive to go further in life.
