GGM Germany wins VEZ Volunteer Award

The VEZ Voliunteer Awards in Germany selected GGM Germany, our newest chapter, as one of its awardees, honoring 21 projects from 201 applications that have impressed with their innovative and committed contributions.

VEZ was particularly pleased that Global Girl Media Germany was bringing the second volunteer award in the women’s power category to Schwerte. The award winners came from all over North Rhine-Westphalia, such as Cologne, Düsseldorf, Münster and Schwerte. GGM Germany supports girls and women in the media sector through training and workshops. GGM Germany has the motto: “Be the heroine of your life, not the victim” (Nora Ephron, filmmaker, USA).
In addition to the prize money of 200 euros, each winner received a trophy, a certificate and, most importantly, a tree planting in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state forest.

A top-class jury selected the award winners, including the well-known artistic director and professor of acting and directing at the Folkwang University in Essen, Brian Michaels. Board member and Program Director Meike-Corina Kühne-Schmithausen traveled to Duisburg with press spokeswoman Henriette Kühne and joyfully and proudly accepted the NRW volunteer award.
