OYW Submission

The Wilmington Jaycees, a JCI Member Organization, invites the community to nominate individuals who embrace the line of the Jaycees Creed, “Service to Humanity is the Best Work of Life!”

The Outstanding Young Wilmingtonian (OYW) Award honors the accomplishments of young people in the city of Wilmington.   Each Outstanding Young Wilmintonian is a person who exemplifies going “above and beyond” when giving back to their community.

Candidates must be residents of New Castle County, age 21 through 40, and exemplify the best attributes of the city’s young people, the Jaycee Creed and dedication to a better community.
