2009 SEAMEO-Australia Press Award

The Secretariat of the Southeast Asian Minister of Education Organization (SEAMEO) has launched the call for the 2009 SEAMEO-Australia Press Award. This is an annual award intended for all journalists who are citizens of one of the ASEAN nations.

In 2008,  Ms. Nguyen Thi Kim Loan, a journalist for the Business Forum Newspaper in Ho Chi Minh City, received  this award for her excellent article on the theme “Reaching the Unreached in Education”.

In the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the Organizing Committee encourages all the journalists to participate in this year’s competition with the theme “International Cooperation in Education”.

Details about the 2009 SEAMEO-Australia Press Award are also published on the websites of the SEAMEO Secretariat (www.seameo.org).
