August 27th 2004. The Motorcycle Industry Association (MCI) set up the 'MCI Outstanding Achievement Award' in November 2000.

The award honours young people who have demonstrated success and growth in the field of road-user education, motorcycling and or automotive-based education.

Eligibility for the prize covers any individual aged younger than 25 years. In 2002, the contest was won by Josh Waterman, an eleven-year-old motocross racer who is profoundly deaf.

To nominate someone for the award, a form can be requested from the MCI. It is then necessary to provide details of the individual's achievement, as well as background information, education and project involvement.

The application form can be downloaded from the MCI's web site:
