The country's biggest award, recognising the efforts of young visionaries to turn around their communities, will kick off at 8:00pm.

This year marks the fourth edition of the ceremony. The one-hour event will be aired live on three private television channels – Gazi TV, Bijoy TV, and ATN News – in addition to its broadcast on the Facebook pages of print, electronic, and digital media.

Since its inception in November 2014, Joy Bangla Youth Award, named after the historical pro-liberation slogan 'Joy Bangla', Young Bangla, the youth front of CRI, has been awarding young people of organisations run by young people whose vision and initiatives catalysed positive change in society.

CRI, the ruling Awami League's research wing, will air the event live on its Facebook page.

Like previous years, Young Bangla received applications from more than 600 organisations run by young people aged between 18 and 35 for their services under the categories of women empowerment, children's rights, empowerment of specially challenged and underprivileged people, youth development, empowerment of ultra-poor people, anti-drug awareness campaign, activities to deal with Covid-19, environment and climate change, renewable or green energy, healthcare, education and awareness, cultural initiatives, and disaster management.

At the first stage, the 'Joy Bangla Youth Award' will be conferred under six categories - women empowerment, children's rights, empowerment of specially challenged people, empowerment of underprivileged people, empowerment of ultra-poor people, and youth development.

In the second stage, the awards will fall under the purview of seven sub-categories - anti-drug awareness campaign, activities to deal with Covid-19, environment and climate change, healthcare, education and awareness, cultural initiatives, and disaster management.

Young Bangla set off on November 15, 2014, to directly incorporate the young generation in the country's development activities geared towards 'Vision 2021'.

The organisation, carried forward by 50,000 volunteers and 315 organisations, consists of nearly 3,00,000 members.
