Award Registration for 25th Recognition Ceremony

Share the Joy of Student Achievers and CEDARS Service Awardees

Students’ exceptional accomplishments and dedicated contributions are officially recognised by the Centre of Development and Resources for Students (CEDARS). Every year, CEDARS hosts a Recognition Ceremony for students who have excelled exceptionally in external competitions and endeavours as well as for those who have made sustained contributions in co-creating vibrant and impactful student life with CEDARS. This ceremony is to honour and celebrate the outstanding achievements and exemplary attitude of our finest students and to inspire the university community to learn from their dedication.

In light of the COVID-19 situation this year, though it is not possible to invite external award winners and CEDARS service awardees to celebrate their achievements with teachers, friends and families at the 25th Recognition Ceremony on HKU campus as previously organised, we would still very much like to recognise their accomplishments on this website, as well as other possible platforms.

Students and graduates are therefore cordially invited to register their accomplishments in external endeavours in 2021 for the recognition.


Sparkle Unleashed Achievements outside Classroom

In 2020, 144 awardees are top winners of external competitions organised by reputable and renowned organisations in the region and of significance (Category A), and 23 are future leaders of significant enhancement in their non-academic learning and acquisition of skills and competencies in areas beyond their study programme (Category B). There are also 21 altruistic individuals who serve the HKU Community sustainably in the CEDARS Reward Scheme (Category C).

Have a glimpse of what HKU students achieved outside the classroom and how they made a different student life.

It’s your turn to — Dream, Sparkle and Shine.
