“We are recognising these young people, we are recognising their achievements, but we are also making sure that others get to know about what is being done by these people so that they realise that they can achieve more in life – for themselves, as well as others,” JCI Malta national president 2008 Chris Mallia said.
Inġ. Sammut, 27, was voted as the overall winner from 8 category finals to be declared the outstanding young person for 2008. He had won the scientific and/or technology development category.

These award winners will be nominated as Malta’s entries for The Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World award, organised by Junior Chamber International. The winners of this award will be honoured during the JCI World Congress in Tunisia in 2009.
