CIS recognises the outstanding work being done by students in CIS Member Schools that promote global citizenship and the development of international awareness in their communities.
Ojas Mandlekar, from Franconian International School, Germany received the CIS International Student Award.
Ojas Mandeklar is a leading figure in the success of the school as a regional centre for the BookBridge project (https://bookbridge.org/en/) developing a partnership with learning centres in Mongolia, facilitated through book collections, fund raising and intercultural learning. Ojas has made a substantial impact as part of this project, going the extra mile, turning up for every event as well as being responsible for organizing/facilitating many of the activities.
He is also the leader of FIS MUN, and in that role, was instrumental in advising a group in a Mongolian partner school on how to go about organising their first MUN conference.
