16 Jul Bernard Clemens Sponsorship Prize awarded for the 9th time
On 30 June 2020, the best pupils (m/f/d) of the three high schools in Wittlich and the two secondary schools were honoured by the Mayor of the City of Wittlich, Joachim Rodenkirch, in the Old City Hall of Wittlich.
The Bernard Clemens Sponsorship Award was established in 2012 and is now endowed with a total of € 18,000. It is supported by the companies CLEMENS Technologies, ELSEN Holding and the NEUE Apotheke in Wittlich.
The prize consists of a freely disposable part of 250 € or 500 € and an earmarked amount between 2,000 € and 5,000 €. This money may be used for a stay abroad with a social or professional background, a language trip or a semester abroad.
To date, a total of 132,000 € has been made available as prize money.
The German economy thrives on exports: Nothing is more important than speaking languages and understanding other cultures and being open to immigration, refugees, foreign customs and foreign religions in one’s own country, say the prize-winning companies. They want to support exactly this with their award.
Serap Yigit and Zoe Ludwig (Kurfürst-Balduin Realschule plus) each received 1,125 € as well as Lucian Andonii (Clara-Viebig Realschule plus) with 2,250 €, Sophie Falkenburg (Peter-Wust Gymnasium) and Jule Heinzelmann (Cusanus Gymnasium) with 4,000 € each and Marie Hermanns with the best high school diploma of the Technical High School and the city of Wittlich with 5,500 €.
