The events continued with the signing of the partnership with the Ministry of National Education and the Royal Lunch of Business Woman organized and hosted by the Royal House of Romania.

Bronze and Silver Ceremony
Bronze and Silver Ceremony, Brasov Patria Hall
On April 23 2016, Patria Hall in Brasov hosted the Award Ceremony for young people who have completed one of the Bronze or Silver levels of the Award program. 56 young people from Brasov, Fagaras, Bucharest, Cluj and Bacau were awarded by Vice-mayor of Brasov, Alexandrina Durbaca, for their progress through the four sections of the program: Personal Abilities, Physical Abilities, Volunteering and Adventure.
The ceremony was a good opportunity for the young participants in the program to delight the audience with their talent through special artistic moments, music instrument representations, vocal, and ballet or public speaking performances.
The event took place with the support of the main partner, Brasov City Hall, and with the help of sponsors Hotel Kronwell, Florariile Magnolia, Deliciile Kronstadt, Effect Advertising, Seo Studios Pro SRL.
An emotional moment of the event was the awarding of certificates for the recognition of the merits of over 20 wonderful volunteers, without which the Award programme could not be possible. Their involvement in the Award sums-up more than 2800 hours of volunteering, addressed to young people and their development.
