44 awards were given to the outstanding performances of the young leaders who had given their unparalleled commitment towards the Local Committee of AIESEC in University of Sri Jayewardenepura, including titles such as Best Emerging Young Leader and Best Young Leader.
Tribute 2022 was delivered successfully in strict accordance with health and safety requirements exceeding the planned outcomes as well.
