Details: Congratulations to 5H Kwan Man Ho, 5H Ko Ho Yin and 5M Hung Yu Lam, Masy who won the 2022 Harvard Book Prize. They attended the prize giving ceremony at Catholic Ming Yuen Secondary School on 27th May 2022. Each of them was awarded a certificate and a book to aspire them to continue their reading journey.
In addition, we cannot miss our special tribute to 5H Kwan Man Ho who was granted the 2022 Harvard Book Prize scholarship after submitting 4 essays and attending an interview in mid May. He is one of the four awardees among all Hong Kong secondary schools this year. Being thankful to his aunt and parents, he has promised to share some of his HKD 10 000 scholarship with them.

Reflections by Scholarship Winner 5H Kwan Man Ho

For those who want to apply for this Harvard Book Prize programme, please do not hesitate. Even though I used to be a problematic student who repeated Form 2, I can be one of the winners. What I’m trying to say is even if this programme seems to be impossible, it can actually be possible. All you have to do is to chip away at your big goal until the day comes when you finally prosper. Eventually, you will secure yourself an invaluable experience or even a scholarship. There is a saying that goes: “Good things come to those who wait”. That is a lie because “Good things come to those who get things done.” So, get it done!

Given this chance, I also have an optional one because I didn't get to say this most of the time. And that goes: "I would like to express my deepest gratitude to my family and friends who helped me stay grounded. Lastly, I would also like to thank myself for how far I have come."
