New date for PM Jamaica 55 Medal of Appreciation Awards

The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has announced the new date for the Prime Minister's Jamaica 55 Commemorative Medal of Appreciation Awards Ceremony.

The event is now to take place on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 on the Lawns of Jamaica House starting at 7pm.


Minister Grange said the Prime Minister's Commemorative Medal of Appreciation Awards Ceremony is one of the main activities in the Jamaica 55 programme for celebrating and awarding outstanding Jamaicans.


Awards will be presented to individuals and groups (corporate or non-corporate) who in the opinion of the Prime Minister have made significant contributions to the development of the economic, social, cultural, or political fabric of Jamaica.


Minister Grange said "the Awards Ceremony on April 25 will be a glittering affair in celebration of the awardees, some of whom are unsung heroes, who have sacrificed much and given so much towards to the development of Jamaica over the last 55 years."


The evening will feature first class entertainment by some of Jamaica's outstanding performers including the National Dance Theatre Company, Xaymaca Dance Company, ASHE Performing Arts Company, gospel artiste Jermaine Edwards, singing trio One Third, and the Jamaican Folk Singers. 




Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.

Olivia Grange
