PRESS RELEASE – The Ministry of Youth Development and Sports would like to congratulate all the winners at the 2013 National Youth Awards.
The year in review has been one full of talent, dedication and hard work by our Saint Lucian Youth. To the nominees, your work and service to your country is invaluable and we do hope that you continue to persevere.
To all the parents, relatives, communities, organisations and cheerleaders who continue to support youth work, the Ministry commends you on your various contributions. We are very aware of the many hands and minds which make this selfless work possible.
