A Moving Event: The TOYP Ceremony
The ten recipients of The Outstanding Young People (TOYP) of the world were honored at an inspiring awards ceremony on Monday night, November 25, at the MGM Grand EFX Theatre. Georges Bouverat, 2001 JCI President, served as emcee. Each trophy presentation was preceded by a short video highlighting the accomplishments of the honoree.
Delegates were also treated to a taste of Las Vegas with aerial acrobats performing between awards presentations. A common idea expressed in different ways in the acceptance speeches of the nominees was that nothing is impossible with commitment and passion, and that service to humanity is the best work of life.
