US Awards Ceremony Features Green Acts
On May 11, Panasonic North America (PNA) held the U.S. KWN Awards Ceremony at its headquarters in New Jersey. Some 130 people, including KWN teams from 4 U.S. finalist schools, PNA executives and guests invited from around the United States attended the ceremony. While the theme for the ceremony was centered on the Olympics, the harmony with the theme of the Environment was kept by the stage props all being recycled from previous KWN events and programs.
A KWN Torch Relay video which featured the KWN teams from eight states doing green acts such as recycling and planting trees in their own states opened the ceremony. Out of the 76 participating schools in the US, Val Verde High School's video on recycling, "Fuhgeddaboutit (Forget about it!)" won the Best Video of the Year.
