“Organ Donation for You and Me” Tram Body Design Competition Awards Ceremony was held by HKOTF at Saint Barnabas’ Society and Home on 6 May 2023. Dr. Libby Lee, Under Secretary for Health was invited as the officiating guest to commend the outstanding performance of the students. More than 70 people from different sectors of the community attended the awards ceremony.

A total of 644 secondary students from 76 schools participated in the competition. The judging panel was formed by representatives of HKOTF and 5 supporting organizations, as well as Prof. Eric Yim, Chairman of Hong Kong Design Centre. The panel selected the champion, 1st runner up, 2nd runner up and 6 merit awards, while “Facebook Popularity” was voted by the public among the top 20 design submissions. There is also a “Best Participating School” award to reward the school with the most participating students in the competition.

As a token of appreciation to the supporting organizations of the “Organ Donation for You and Me” Tram Body Design Competition, certificates were presented to their representatives at the awards ceremony. Special thanks were also given to Saint Barnabas’ Society and Home as sponsor of the venue, and 80M Bus Model Shop as sponsor of the tram model.

Dr. Libby Lee hoped that everyone would join hands to promote organ donation, and students could become organ donation ambassadors!

The prize presenters took photo with the winning students and their teachers, expressing gratitude to their support in the competition.  

Dr. Ho Kai-leung, Kelvin said that it was meaningful to use tram, which had rich historical value and local characteristics, to  spread the message of organ donation to the general public. At the same time, it could inspire the younger generation to rethink on the subject.

The General Manager of tramplus Mr. Nixon Cheung (1st left) appreciated the thoughtful design created by students. He said that tramplus and HKOTF shared the same belief. The promotion of organ donation should start from education.
