The Michigan Junior Chamber’s Outstanding Young Michigander (OYM) and Distinguished Service Award Program was started in 1955 to recognize outstanding community leaders age 21 to 40 years old from around the state of Michigan.
The program honors up to five (5) Outstanding Young Michiganders (OYM) and up to five (5) Distinguished Service Awards (DSA) annually, who exemplify the best attributes of the state’s young people. Honorees selected in past years have represented the heights of progress in all human endeavors. Many have gone on to even greater achievements. All have continued to serve humanity in a great variety of ways.
Outstanding Young Michiganders and Distinguished Service Award recipients will be honored at an evening Ceremony held on Saturday, November 9, 2013. The ceremony will highlight each winner’s career in narrative form and provide a stage from which the honorees can challenge and inspire young people from around Michigan. For each honoree, there will be a video presentation profiling his/her accomplishments, followed by the trophy presentation, and an acceptance speech.
