By Nombongo Nxele

On May 20 at 18h00 the Eastern Cape Youth Awards announced the nominees for the Eastern Cape Youth Awards live on Facebook. 

The mission of the EC Youth Awards is to recognise, celebrate and promote youth excellence in the Eastern Cape, to create a perpetual store of inspiration for upcoming generations. 

Buhle Tonise the Founder of Eastern Cape Youth Awards said, “There is an independent panel that selects three nominees’ categories meaning that if there were 20 nominations they have to cut down to 3.  The is also a dual system of assessment meaning 50 percent comes from the judges or the panellist and the other 50 percent comes from the voting system. We have a host competition and we looking for 2 hosts for the evening, host competition top 7; Abulele Dlungule, Bonginkosi Thathemntwini, Gugu Phandle, Ngazibini Zanovuyo Mahobe, Selathe Mathiya, Siviwe Jwacu and Thatho Mosheshoe. I hope the awards will inspire the youth of the Eastern Cape.”
