Leading The Way™ is an innovative program created by Youth in Motion. Best described as an "inspirational high school assembly" designed to inspire youth to act whether it means creating a difference in their families, circles of friends or communities.

At Youth in Motion, we want to encourage you to continue making a difference. That is why we created Top 20 Under 20™ - to celebrate and honour Canadians who have demonstrated a significant level innovation, leadership and achievement but have not yet reached the age of 20. There are incredible young people in this country doing incredible things!


Applications for Youth in Motion's Top 20 Under 20™ Awards 2012 are now being accepted. The award celebrates and honours young Canadians who are under the age of 20 years old and have demonstrated significant levels of innovation, leadership and achievement. Help us seek out these young leaders, and give them an experience and opportunity of a lifetime!


The deadline for applications is 4:30pm, January 22nd 2012.  The successful 2012 award winners will be announced at a ceremony, open to the public on June 7, 2012 in Toronto.  The 20 young leaders will be flown into Toronto all expenses paid and receive a cash prize of $5,000 dollars to be used towards an educational experience of their choosing.
