The Outstanding Young Person of Sabah (TOYPS) is an award organised by the JCI Kota Kinabalu to recognize young Sabahan and Malaysian individuals in Sabah who have dedicated themselves to the progress or welfare of the community at large. There are many young Sabahan and Malaysian individuals that have excelled in their field of profession, practice and endeavour. Some are known by the public but some have excelled in obscurity making them unsung heroes of their field. TOYPS, organised by JCI KK, main objective is to recognize both these individuals.
Objective no 1
To accord recognition to young Sabahan and Malaysian individuals in Sabah whose dedication to their profession or life undertakings have resulted to the progress or welfare of the community (Sabah, Malaysia and the World) and the advancement of their respective field(s).
Objective no 2
To create public awareness and give recognition to outstanding achievements, thereby inspiring young Malaysians to greater heights with selfless dedication for the development of the community.
