Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award
Organized by Youth Arch Foundation and co-organized by The Outstanding Young Persons’ Association, the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award is one of the most recognized and prestigious awards for secondary school students in Hong Kong. The Award, initiated by Lion & Globe Educational Trust Fund in 1985, aims to encourage promising students with outstanding academic, extra-curricular and community service achievements, and morality.
From 2010 onwards, the Youth Arch Foundation succeeded the role of the Award Organizer and made some revolutionary changes in the selection system. The Award would continue to advocate and foster the spirits of moral, intellectual and physical education amongst Hong Kong students. Applicants would need to go through a written test, an assessment program and a final interview. “Outstanding Students” will finally be chosen by a group of professional judges. The Award not only commends students’ outstanding achievements, but also an opportunity for self-discovery and cultivation. Through taking part in leadership-training camps, seminars, and exchange activities, students can enhance their self-understanding and broaden their horizons.
