Under the patronage of the Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Minister of State Annette Widmann-Mauz, the three best training graduates with a migration background will be chosen on March 24, 2021.

The nationwide competition is carried out by the BildungsWerk in Kreuzberg (BWK), the KAUSA service centre in Berlin and the Association of the Migrant Economy (VMW).

The award ceremony will take place as an online event on March 24th, 2021 in Berlin and the best nationwide graduates of dual training with a migration background will be honoured.

The 1st place is endowed with 5000 €, the 2nd place with 3000 € and the 3rd with 2000 €! The integration officer is the sponsor of the project.

WHY IS THIS AWARD GIVEN?

It is still more difficult for people with a migration background to be perceived positively in the training market than other applicants especially for Africans in Germany who are looked down upon and racially stigmatised. That should change!

In order to set an example against this, the outstanding achievements of graduates of dual training with a migration background should be given special recognition.
