The Golden Youth Award is a neat idea of the Bhutan Youth Development Fund (YDF):
- To establish a system of recognizing for notable achievements by youth.
- To motivate youth to be outstanding.
- To identify potential leaders for a new and challenging political environment.
The Golden Youth Award will be given to the youths who demonstrate outstanding achievements not only in academics but also in other categories such as sports, artistic, leadership, cultural and social contribution. Young people of Bhutan have always held a special place in our Monarch’s heart therefore, the golden youth award besides being a tribute to His Majesty the 4th King is also to recognize and motivate youth who reveal leadership and outstanding qualities.
A week long “Golden Youth Camp” for 10 youth for each dzongkhag, for the final selection of the award winners, started off today at the brand new Jigme Singye Wangchuck Youth Center here in Thimphu.
VAST is privileged to participate in this Golden Youth Camp as art competition organizers. The VAST team is led by VAST member Dorji Gyeltshen.
