We are happy to share with you our provisional solution for awarding the Mérite Jeunesse laureates 2020. Instead of having a big ceremony, three smaller ones are planned. On 16 March, the Bronze Certificates will be handed over, whereas on 17 March, the Silver and Gold participants will be honoured in the presence of Minister Meisch. The Prix du Mérite will have its own Ceremony on 11 May.
Currently, we are not sure about the number of people that may be present during these ceremonies. If feasible, the Award Leaders and Directors having Silver and Gold Laureates, will be invited to join the second ceremony on 17 March. The Bronze Award Holders may be accompanied by one parent.
The news will be followed closely and the concept of the Award Ceremony will be adapted to the situation.
