The 10th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Prize

Hong Kong Prize is one of Asia’s premier awards, drawing thousands of applicants every year. Besides the monetary prize, winners get access to Hong Kong’s premier research facilities and global exposure. The award embodies Hong Kong’s commitment to scientific innovation, international cooperation and high standards of moral conduct. The prize logo depicts two precious elements – a pearl and a jade amulet – that have positive associations in both Chinese and Western cultures. The prestigious award is managed by the Board of Governors, a company limited by guarantee incorporated in Hong Kong.

This year, the prize celebrated a wide range of individuals, including the founder of a nonprofit that offers shelter to homeless adults and a professor responsible for liquid biopsy technology, which helps doctors more quickly diagnose cancer. It also gave top honors to a veteran actor and a film that takes an in-depth look at the lives of people with developmental disabilities.

The HK Prize is one of the most popular science contests in Hong Kong and around the world, with over 4000 students taking part in this competition each year. It is a great way for students to showcase their talents and develop their interests in science and technology. Students can also learn more about Asian culture through participating in this contest, which recognizes their language skills and encourages them to follow their passions.
