CLAN Nominated for Asia Society's 2013 Asia 21 Public Service Award
CLAN is proud to have applied for the Asia 21 Public Service Award again in 2013. The Asia 21 Public Service Award acknowledges an organization whose work benefits underprivileged social and economic groups, communities, and the public in the Asia-Pacific region. As a previous finalist (in 2009 and 2010) CLAN appreciates what an enormous honour it would be to win this award - previous winners have set a very high standard!
CLAN has enjoyed a long association with the Asia Society's Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative. Dr Kate Armstrong attended the 2009 Asia 21 Summit in Malaysia as a Young Leader, and is thrilled to have been invited back again to attend the 2013 Summit in Zhenjiang, China. It will be an incredible opportunity to meet and network with some incredible young leaders in the region.
The Asia 21 Public Service Award consists of prize money of $10,000 and the active support of the 2013 Asia 21 Young Leaders Class in providing the selected public service organization with access to the Young Leaders’ network for program development as well as in helping to replicate the models of successful projects throughout Asia. The Public Service Award will be presented at the 2013 Asia 21 Young Leaders Summit that will be held in Zhenjiang, China on December 6-8, 2013.
Please wish CLAN luck with this prestigious award!
