We had our 3rd National Award Ceremony on Wednesday, 16 August 2017 (Shrawan, 32nd 2074) at the British Embassy, Lazimpat, to celebrate the amazing achievements of our record-breaking 215 Award recipients this year.
The programme started with a welcome address by Mr. Chandrayan P. Shrestha, Chairman, who thanked everyone for their help in growing the Award all over Nepal. Four Bronze Awardees then shared their experiences of participating in the Award – Charavee Chettri from Rato Bangla School, Priyadarshani Shrestha from Astrek Climbing Wall, Bidhant Gurung from Team Nepal and The Chandbagh School, Priyanka Thapa from Kathmandu University High School.
The guest of honour was His Excellency Mr. Richard C Morris, British Ambassador to Nepal, who distributed 209 Bronze medals and 6 Silver medals to 215 participants of the Award Programme. Mr Kiran Maharjan from Rato Bangla School and Mr. Santosh KC from Baylor International Academy, were also recognised Outstanding Award Leaders for the voluntary contributions they’ve made to the Award in Nepal.
The British Ambassador addressed the participants and congratulated them for their achievements. He emphasised that the participants who have achieved the Awards were the real ambassadors of the Award who could encourage more young people to get involved in the Award. The programme ended with traditional and folk dances performance by students of Rato Bangla School, Samtalum Album Academy, Kathmandu University High School and GEMS Institute of Higher Education.
