Honda Y-E-S Award 2012 in Cambodia Award Ceremony Highlights

Four Excellent Students Received the 5th Y-E-S Award in Cambodia

The Y-E-S Award in Cambodia reached its fifth year. After careful consideration of essays and interviews, four most brilliant awardees were selected among applicants in science and engineering majors who have studied at the two affiliated Cambodian universities.
The award ceremony took place at the Angkor-Kizuna Hall of Cambodia-Japan Cooperation Center (CJCC) in Phnom Penh on February 22, 2013. Like the previous year, the ceremony was one of the featured events in the Japan-Cambodia Kizuna Festival 2013 co-hosted by the Embassy of Japan and CJCC. The awardees received warm applause from more than 400 participants, including their families and the government officials.

This is my fifth attendance at the Y-E-S Award ceremony here in Cambodia, and each time I feel very much honored to be part of the occasion. Over the past four years, receiving the Y-E-S Award has become one of the biggest goals as well as encouragements for aspiring students in Cambodia. It has provided to us an opportunity to better understand how we can use science and technology not only for our growth but also for dealing with environmental problems. I must repeat my deepest respect and gratitude to the Honda Foundation for their provision of this kind of precious assistance.
Let me extend my sincere congratulations to the four awardees this year who have been recognized through a rigorous selection process. Including them, I hope all students who enthusiastically participate in the Award will continue their individual endeavors and each one of them will be instrumental in the development of Cambodia.
