1st Munich Inner Wheel Prize 2020

Bavarian teachers are honored by Inner Wheel

By awarding a prize for moral courage, six Munich Inner Wheel Clubs are setting an example for more tolerance and humanity in society. The award ceremony was attended by the public with great interest. The prize was awarded to Bavarian teachers who have shown particular commitment to the teaching of moral courage in their schools.

The award ceremony took place at the end of October 2020 in Munich. Due to the limited space available at the event as a result of corona measures, the event was broadcast live in the online stream on the homepage.

" Moral courage concerns us all", said the Bavarian Minister of Culture, Prof. Dr. Michael Piazolo in his video message. He thanked the teachers for their commitment and the Inner Wheelers for their great dedication to this topic. The National Representative of Inner Wheel Germany, Beatrix von Fassong, stressed in her personal greeting: "Where war, politics and environmental disasters threaten to unhinge the world; where values threaten to lose their value; where courage is needed to defend these values with civil courage.

All this must be underlined today with this prize. Congratulations to the organisers of this prize!”

Four schools were nominated, the prize money was 5000 Euros and another 500 Euros were awarded for a special prize.

The winner was the girl school St. Josef in Schwandorf, Bavaria, "We are very happy", said project manager Daniela Amrein. "This award means a lot to all of us. I like to invest my heart and soul every day and get involved in teaching. The students give it back in a great way!"

The next award ceremony will take place in 2022.
