Our community stays strong because we encourage young people like Mary to stay dynamically committed to academic excellence and community service. And encourage Mary we did, thanks to friends like you and your
support for our Annual Academic Awards Picnic.
The Maryland Vietnamese Mutual Association invites you to invest in our future leaders by contributing to our 24th Annual Academic Awards Picnic. This much anticipated event will honor, celebrate and award hardworking Vietnamese American students, committed teachers, and involved parents in Montgomery County. The exciting event will be held June 3rd, 2012 from 11am to 2pm at Bohrer Park at Summit Hall Farm located at 506 S Frederick Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20877.
Each year, every school in Montgomery County is given the opportunity to nominate their brightes Vietnamese American students from K-12. It is this tireless effort—tracking grades, examining extra-curricular activities, reviewing letters of recommendation—that makes this awards ceremony possible. In addition to awards, every year MVMA also provides $1,000 scholarships to two graduating seniors who have shown, through academic and volunteerism, their commitment to enriching the community through their pursuit of higher education. Our goal is simple: to nurture and empower a future generation of conscientious leaders.
Bright students don’t spring from the sky, however. It truly takes a village to raise a child. That’s why we honor and recognize the students’ teachers who have spent so much time encouraging these young people as well as their parents, without whose love and support the students would not have the energy or courage to drive forward.
Donations from supporters like you ensure that each nominated Vietnamese American student and influential teacher will be honored for their ongoing academic excellence. Note that the money raised at the picnic will go towards the picnic, awards, scholarships, and educational programs at MVMA. Thank you very much in advance for your contribution.
No amount would be too small.
