Written by Leydin Sorto

The Instituto Nacional de la Juventud (INJUVE) presented the Premio Nacional de Juventud 2023, which recognizes the talent, creativity, skills, hard work and ingenuity of young salvadorans.

There were 248 young residents in the country and abroad who submitted their projects for the six available categories: social work, innovation, science and technology, national talent, entrepreneurial ingenuity, sports promise and outstanding salvadoran abroad.


The winners receive a prize of US$7,665 to continue with their projects.

The winners were named ambassadors of youth 2023-2024, while the second and third place winners received a technical training scholarship that will enhance their educational skills.

In recognition of their bravery, INJUVE also presented them with a kit of advanced technological equipment containing inputs and tools that will support their projects.


The first place in the category of outstanding salvadoran abroad went to Serena Jeannette Torres Flores; in the category of sporting promise went to Daniela Victoria Hernández Cativo; in science and technology innovation the first place went to Carlos José Recinos Alvarenga; in national talent the award went to Andrés Ernesto Guardado; social work to Daniel Enrique Martínez Ramos; and entrepreneurial ingenuity went to Vanessa Beatriz Sandoval.


"This day we are proud to reward the talent and work of the youth, who have shown that with their projects they are helping to build the present and future of our country", said the director of INJUVE, Zaira Pineda.

The official said that, thanks to the reform of the General Youth Law, the age range now goes up to 35 years old, so more young people had the opportunity to register and participate.
