Hong Kong Schools Music and Speech Association
Sponsorship Opportunities (2018) (Updated on 19 July 2017)
The Association has maintained its interest and activities in the training and educational side of speech and music-making for the young people in Hong Kong. Currently, many prizes have been introduced for the Festivals, including bringing winners the opportunity of scholarships for overseas exchange and training. Winners’ concerts and recitals will be organized every year for staging the young performers to the community. Plans are also in hand to collaborate with different arts organizations so as to provide platforms for the youth to enhance their artistic level. However, the Festivals are part only for the picture of what the Association is trying to achieve, with welcome support from the government, the media, schools principals and teachers, and many other members of the community who share our common interest in the cultural welfare of the young people of Hong Kong.
