10th JA Africa Company of the Year Competition

Welcome to the 2020 Virtual JA Africa Company of the Year Competition!

The 10th annual Africa COY competition, hosted by JA Eswatini, will be held virtually from March 25-27, 2021 and we’re excited to welcome you! The theme for COY 2020 is “Lead to Succeed”. It is inspired by the need for young people to understand that in order to lead others, they must first lead themselves; that is, demonstrate personal leadership. Developing personal leadership skills is crucial for young people to direct their own pathways to success instead of letting time and chance determine thier course. We are excited to see the business our competitors come up with this year.

We expect to have 12 country teams competing for the grand prize of Company of the Year as well as branded awards. The teams will represent Botswana, Côte d'Ivoire, Eswatini, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe .
