Konrad Friedrichs GmbH & Co. KG launches KF Schools Advancement Award “KEY TO YOUR FUTURE” – Support for committed students – Different categories for all school types and age groups – A total of 4,000 € prize money
With the newly established School Advancement Award “KEY TO YOUR FUTURE”, Kulmbach-based Konrad Friedrichs GmbH & Co. KG is committed to its responsibility as an employer and medium-sized company in the region around Kulmbach: “We want to support pupils who, in addition to their normal everyday school life, show commitment in different areas”, says President Dr. Steffen Blömer.
All school groups who meet outside the regular school time and show passion for different projects can apply for this award. “Whether sports, music, theater groups or something completely different – we are open to everything”, says plant manager Mr. Thomas Dambacher. As the application must be made with a self-made video by a mobile phone, the anticipation at the Konrad Friedrich GmbH & Co. KG is correspondingly high: “We are looking forward to the creative ideas of the school groups. We are happy about every application and can hardly wait for the first entries”, says Fabian Herbst, aide of the management.
After the presentation at the headteacher meeting at the end of September, this week the official starting signal was given by a letter to all schools in the city and district of Kulmbach. After the application phase in March 2019, a jury will announce the winners in May 2019. The jury includes the mayor of the Thurnau market, Mr. Martin Bernreuther and Dr. Michael Pfitzner from the SCHULEWIRTSCHAFT working group.
In total, Konrad Friedrichs GmbH & Co. KG pays out € 4,000 in various school and age categories. All interested parties can also find information on the website: https://www.german-carbide.com/en/advancement-award/
