Chamber to Host Ten Outstanding Young Leaders Awards

The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the revival of a longstanding Boston tradition, the Ten Outstanding Young Leaders (TOYL) awards.

The TOYL awards were presented by the Boston Jaycees from 1952 to 2006 to identify and celebrate the region's young leaders. With the support of the U.S. Jaycees, we will resume these prestigious awards in 2012 and continue the tradition of honoring Greater Boston's current and future leaders.

The 2012 Ten Outstanding Young Leaders awards will be held on Thursday, June 21, at the Westin Waterfront Hotel.

Since its inception, over 500 young leaders--including President John F. Kennedy, community advocate Carol Fulp, business leader Jack Connors, Jr., and Boston Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski--have been honored for their professional, personal, and civic commitment to improving the quality of life within our community.

We look forward to continuing the legacy created by the Boston Jaycees, and are currently accepting nominations for the 2012 awards. The nomination deadline is Friday, March 23.

To learn more about the Ten Outstanding Young Leaders awards event, please contact Ali Pincus-Jacobs, senior director of programs, at 617-557-7347.
