KGV would like to congratulate Trinity (Year 12) who has won two awards recently, namely the Winner of Fiction Group 5 of the Hong Kong Young Writers Award and the Youth Award of the Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize and Rishi (Year 12) who has won the Non-Fiction Group 5 of the Hong Kong Young Writers Award.
Hong Kong Young Writers Award aim is to foster excellence in creativity by providing students with the opportunity to develop their expressive talents and expand their horizons. The awards encourage and recognise excellence in English writing and artwork among students, aged from 6-18, of various age groups, diverse backgrounds and different learning abilities. Since its inception in 2010, the competition has been a resounding success, with over 1,000 entries coming in from approximately 200 participating schools across Hong Kong, Macau and China in 2019.
The Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize (HKHRAP), established by Justice Centre Hong Kong in 2013, has played a pivotal role in discovering and encouraging Hong Kong artists to explore the state of human rights both at home and abroad. Justice Centre envisions Hong Kong as a fair and inclusive society where even the most marginalised enjoy fundamental rights and access to justice.
Congratulations to Trinity and Rishi winning these 2 prestigious awards.
