This is the seventh time that this award has been presented.

Dentaa alongside fellow nominees will be present on Friday 23rd October 2015 at the Accra International Conference Centre during the 2015 Transformational Leadership Conference in hope of receiving the award. Vice President of Ghana His Excellency Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur will also be in be present during proceedings as the Special Guest of Honour.
By receiving this nomination Ms. Amoateng finds herself in prestigious and highly-acclaimed company. There have been many high-profile personalities who have received this honorary award from the YPYC such as John Kufour (ex-President of the Republic of Ghana), the late Komla Afeke Dumor, Premier League footballer Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew and His Excellency John Dramini Mahama (current President of the Republic of Ghana), to name a few.

On her nomination for such a prestigious award, Dentaa commented “I am thrilled, honoured and deeply humbled to be invited to be in such prestigious company by receiving this momentous award. It is always a pleasure to have one’s efforts recognised. However, the most important thing is that our community at large continues to strive for excellence in order to inspire our Ghanaian youth to aspire for the stars and beyond and continue to make our nation great & strong.”
