National Young Leader Award

The National Young Leader Award complements the Singapore Youth Award (for youths up to 35 years old) by reaching out to a specific age group of young leaders, between 15 and 19 years old. This award was launched to recognise young leaders who are involved, engaged, and show conviction in the things they do, regardless of their academic achievements.

By highlighting the stories of these young leaders, we hope it inspires a generation of young people to also rise up and make that positive contribution in their communities.

The Leadership Trials is aimed at our top 25 applicants who will undergo a series of tests of their leadership competency and aptitude through a day of games and challenging situations. Out of these 25, the best 8 will become the National Young Leader Award finalists.
LEADERSHIP DIALOGUE

The Leadership Dialogue is curated for our finalists to hear from leaders in the workforce and learn about what leadership looks like in a work environment. Through a closed group setting with our corporate partners, our finalists will have the opportunity to draw from their experiences and gain insight into their career pathway in the future.

Assessment

The rubric is developed to measure five key domains that we believe young leaders need to act upon.

Involvement: Being active in their immediate communities such as their class, CCA, neighbourhood

Conviction: Acting on issues and passion areas that they believe in

Engagement: Leading their immediate community to be involved in nation or worldwide issues

Self Leadership: Leading oneself well and being a positive influence to those around them

Group Leadership: Working well in teams to achieve common goals
