Student News ~ AWC Scholarship Program


Gratefulness during COVID 19

We asked students to draw a picture what they were grateful for during this pandemic. We received many Scholarship entries from schools all over central, northern, and northeastern Thailand submitted their stunning pieces of art for the 2020 AWC Scholarship Art Contest. The 2020 winners were selected by popular vote on our members-only Facebook group. Each winner was very happy to receive a small cash award.

1st place: “Thank You Co-Vid” by Ratchaneekorn Narason, M5 at Kokekor Pittayakhom School. Sponsor Derek Stamp, Thailand Oilsmen Charity.

2nd Place: “Co-Vid 19” by Wiphani Chaiyana, M5 at Samoengpittayakhom School. Sponsor Christopher Gaffney.

Letter from a Student

Dear sponsor,
Hello, I am Thanyamai Tiratha. I am studying in the second year of higher level at Samoengpittayakom School I am studying hard and do other duties for school too. I am a staff at Matthayomsuksa 5 group. My duty is about sports and I help my friends to plan and manage some events and organise many things with a new woman teacher. I got 3.27 (EPA) of all subjects last term.

This year I and my friends have some project works. We do projects about strawberry. We are trying to make some food and add strawberry as the main ingredient such as cookie, cupcake. We are lucky because the owner of a new resort here permit their bakers to teach us at school. I paid some scholarship money for making cupcakes, the bus to school and some important fee, insurance, computer and etc.

My parents and I are very glad to say thank you to you. I was very glad to see some sponsors and the great teamwork at English Camp in Chiang Mai last November. I met and made friends from some school too. I will try hard to study English and speak very well.
