The Nigeria Youth Talent Hunt Exhibition and Top 12 Award is a project designed to identify, capacitate and showcase young change makers in Nigeria using their community based projects to create positive social change in their local communities.
On christmas day in Detroit 2009, a young Nigerian attempted to blow up a jetliner in a failed bomb scare which put Nigeria in the headlines for a most negative reason, shocking the Nigeria people and generating widespread condemnation. However that action does not represent the values, responsibility, patriotism, creativity, humaness and positive outlook of the average Nigerian youth. The Nigeria Youth Talent Hunt Exhibition and Top 12 Award is one of such initiative that showcases that young and emerging Nigerians are strategic contributors to national and global good.
For young people interested in community impact projects and showcasing what they are doing to change communities, The Nigeria Youth Talent Hunt Exhibition and Top 12 Awards is a great national opportunity. For corporate bodies interested in promoting positive youth culture in Nigeria or any where in the African continent, this project offers a huge market and opportunity.
This project, which is initiated by Youngstars Foundation in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Youth Development has further demonstrated that young people across Nigeria are willing to contribute in their own way towards the development of our motherland Nigeria, and most importantly, that adult & youth partnership is critical in fostering strategic youth development and nation building.
