Hopewell Partners with Newsweek to Support Youth Development and Education 
 
21 Sep 2012

Supporting youth development is a core part of Hopewell Holdings Limited’s corporate sustainability involvement. To help local university students view international issues from a global perspective and enhance their analytical abilities and English writing skills, Hopewell Holdings Limited (“Hopewell”) has sponsored an innovative education program in Hong Kong with Newsweek magazine. The first year of this Hopewell-Newsweek Education Program (“the Program”) was concluded in June 2012 when 15 university students were selected as winners of the Program’s Essay Contest.

Enhancing analytical and language skills

The Hopewell-Newsweek Education Program is the first of its kind in Hong Kong targeting English and Business faculty students at seven Hong Kong universities, aiming to enhance their awareness of global events by keeping them informed with in-depth analysis and insight from a truly international perspective.

Running for 13 consecutive weeks, the Program has provided sponsored education program packs including the latest issue of Newsweek, worksheets and model answer sheets drafted by expert teaching professionals to the students each week, facilitating their self-learning and self-assessment.

Essay Contest

Participating students in the Program were invited to join the contest through submission of an essay in response to one of four thought-provoking questions based on current political and social issues. Among the many essay submissions, 15 winners were chosen by a panel of education experts, judging according to clarity of argument, understanding of subject, and creative and technical writing skills.

The winners were presented certificates and book vouchers at the Essay Contest Award Presentation Ceremony held at Hopewell Centre in June 2012 in acknowledgement of their efforts in cultural and linguistic spectrums.

Participating universities included: The University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Baptist University and Lingnan University.
