What is the Hongkong Prize?

The hongkong prize is a premier science competition that attracts thousands of applicants each year. Founded in 1991, it is one of Asia’s most prestigious awards, and gives high school students access to some of Hong Kong’s top research facilities. Its goal is to encourage young people to pursue their passions while promoting international cooperation and high moral integrity standards. In addition to offering financial prizes, the top ten finalists also receive shopping vouchers and F&B perks. To be eligible, candidates must submit their work to a nominating teacher at their school and be able to meet all applicable requirements.

The Hong Kong Prize recognizes individuals who make contributions to global civilisation, and inspire a sense of common ground across different cultures and backgrounds. Past winners have included a brain cancer survivor who runs an NGO to help students with mental health issues and a Zambian volunteer who works at local charities. The competition is open to scientists from Southeast Asia, mainland China and anywhere else in the world who wish to apply. Interested candidates should visit the website to register starting March 1st.

In addition to honoring scientific research with significant societal benefit, the Hong Kong Prize encourages a broad range of social progress, including addressing human rights and environmental protection. This is reflected in the design of its logo, a double-sided amulet featuring pearls and jade pierced at various places – symbolising Hong Kong’s resilience and spirit.

This award is open to all fields of technology innovation in the Greater Bay Area, which covers a total area of more than 1,500 square kilometers and includes Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong. The innovations range from an ultra-stable lithium metal battery to a firm-to-soft intelligent floor mat for fall injury prevention, and many more. The selection of winners takes place through a blind peer review process that is free from sponsorship or external influences.

Aside from the monetary prize and the chance to participate in seminars, the hongkong prize offers opportunities for students to conduct research internships at leading universities and laboratories in Hong Kong. This is a great way to expand their professional network and increase their chances of landing future employment. Winners of this prestigious competition will also be honored at an awards ceremony and may have the opportunity to present their research at conferences or seminars.

The HK History Book Prize was established to encourage authors to devote more time writing on Hong Kong history and promote scholarship of this field of study. The short term goals include recruiting more volumes for the Royal Asiatic Society’s Hong Kong Studies series while the long terms aim to attract a younger generation of researchers into this field. In addition to the monetary reward of HK$50,000, the prize will also provide support to the winning artist for their creative work, arts projects and further studies. Tsui Su-chi was the inaugural winner of this award for her signature style and contribution to art development in Hong Kong.
