Greek Pupils Awarded by EU

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  The Greek high school of Vironas, municipality of Athens, received the 3rd prize in the European Charlemagne Youth Prize Competition for 2008. The annual competition is organised by the European Parliament and the Charlemagne Prize Foundation. The event aims at inviting young people from all EU Member States to contemplate on EU development, integration and identity issues. The prize is awarded to the projects that best promote European understanding. The Greek high school of Vironas was rewarded for its innovating teaching method regarding European matters. The first prize was awarded to a students’ union from Hungary. The young winners received their awards by Parliament’s President Hans-Gert Pöttering and were later on invited by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, laureate of the 2008 Charlemagne Prize, a distinction with which the great Greek statesman Konstantinos Karamanlis was also honoured in 1978.
