趙晉尉 / 瑪利諾修院學校(中學部)/ 中五

Eunice CHIU Chun Wai / Maryknoll Convent School (Secondary Section) / Form 5

晉尉自小與爸爸在家中辯論時事,養成了獨立思考,敢想敢做的性格。除了在中三時在校內創立聯合國兒童基金會學會,她更跳出校園,到深水埗推廣「代用麵包」計劃,宣揚社會服務也可以是互相分享的概念。作為傑生得主,她感激過往所得的機會和栽培;飲水思源,她期望將來成立為基層兒童爭取權益的非政府機構,回饋社會。

Eunice developed critical thinking and an assertive character through debating current affairs with his father since childhood. Besides establishing the United Nations Children’s Fund Club at school in Form 3, Eunice reached out to the community; she helped to promote the “Prepaid Bread” scheme in Sham Shui Po and the notion that social service is a sharing experience. Thankful for the opportunities and nurturing she was given, Eunice hopes to reciprocate to society by setting up a NGO to defend the rights of children from low-income families.

The Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award

Organized by the Youth Arch Foundation, co-organized by The Outstanding Young Persons’ Association and sponsored by the Lion & Globe Educational Trust, the Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award is one of the most recognized and prestigious awards for secondary school students in Hong Kong. The Award recognizes and commends promising students with outstanding academic, extra-curricular and community service achievements, and virtuous morality and is well regarded for its rigorous and fair selection process. Nominees undergo a series of carefully designed activities to be identified as the best among the best. The activities during and after the selection process provide experiential experiences for the nominees to expand their horizons for ongoing advancement.

The Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award was founded by the Lion & Globe Educational Trust in 1985. In the first two years of its establishment, the Award limited nomination to female students only but started to include males thereafter. Ms. Doreen Leung, an Outstanding Young Persons of the World, administered the Award for 25 years. After her sad passing in 2009, a group of the Award’s past awardees and finalists founded the Youth Arch Foundation (“YAF”) in 2010 and undertook administering the Award since. Nominees will have to go through a written test, an assessment program and interview by a panel of specialists to be selected as an Awardee of the year. YAF also regularly organizes specialist led leadership training camps, seminars and interflow activities to advocate and foster moral, intellectual, physical, social, and aesthetics values amongst Hong Kong students.

As the Award celebrates its thirtieth birthday, it is gratifying to note that its recipients over the years have established themselves in society and excelled in many professions, and more importantly, with unwavering dedication to serve society at all times, proved their worthiness to the honour that the Award bestows.
