International Education Awards

Five high school students have been awarded the 2007 Youth Prizes for Excellence in International Education by the New York City-based Asia Society, a nonprofit organization that works to strengthen ties between Asian countries and the United States, and New York City-based Goldman Sachs Foundation, a philanthropy that promotes excellence and innovation in education. The students were selected based on their ability to demonstrate an understanding of international affairs and each will receive a $10,000 scholarship. This year’s recipients are Jacob Bredthauer, Omaha, Neb., Yena Jun, Hackensack, N.J., Chelsea Lee, Port Charlotte, Fla., Junyao Peng, Elk Grove, Calif., and Suruchi Srikanth, Irving, Texas.
