Background and various categories awarded
It is a common knowledge that Denkyira Youth have been achieving unprecedented heights.
Unfortunately, there is no programme designed to celebrate and decorate such heroes and heroins to encourage them to soar even higher and brighter.
DYC has come to realize that putting the shining stars of Denkyira undercover to dim their shine is completely unacceptable.
It’s against the background that DYC has instituted the “DENKYIRA YOUTH EXCELLENCE AWARDS”
Decorating and honouring deserving Denkyira Youth annually has the natural propensity to motivate and encourage others to achieve even greater heights. This will certainly help us to dominate the affairs of Ghana, Africa and the world in the near future.
