Rajasthan Youth Board has fixed August 15 as the last date for accepting applications for Youth Icon Awards

The board’s objective is to inspire young people to do outstanding work in various fields. Youths who excel in the fields of arts and culture, sports, media, fashion designing, academic, agriculture, environment, entrepreneurship, women's empowerment and sanitation will be eligible for this award.
Youth icons will be selected at the state level. The award distribution function is scheduled to be held in September.
