The Hong Kong Outstanding Students' Association (HKOSA) was founded in 1987 by the awardees of the Hong Kong Outstanding Students' Award, overseen by the Youth Arch Foundation and previously by the Lion & Globe Educational Trust. Currently, there are over 1200 members will a united mission to contribute the charitable causes, foster student participation in social services and seize the incentive to serve the Hong Kong community.
The Association has always strived to educate students in all aspects of society as well as develop their leadership skills and sense of social conscience. Thus, it has taken an active role in the community and initiated innovative projects throughout the years. The Association also recognises the importance of strong community connections, and it has continuously promoted and organised social service activities.
Additionally, the Association has always considered it imperative that the voices of the youth should be heard in today's society. Hence, a myriad of events such as the Youth Summit is organised every year to allow student participants to express their concerns and propose solutions on pressing issues both locally and globally today. The Association will continue to serve society and create a brighter future for Hong Kong.
HISTORY OF HKOSA
THE FIRST AWARD
Ms. Doreen Leung initiated the "Hong Kong Outstanding Female Students Award" with the support of the Lion and Globe Educational Trust.
FIRST YOUTH SUMMIT
The earlierst record of Youth Summit, our flagship programme, can be traced back to 2003 under the socially and economically challenging circumstance. Through a simulation of the General Assembly of the United Nations, the Committee aims to raise social awareness and a sense of belonging towards Hong Kong.
ESTABLISHMENT OF OUR ASSOCIATION
The "Hong Kong Outstanding Students' Association" was founded by winners and finalists of the award.
Meanwhile, the award was first opened to male students and was renamed "Hong Kong Outstanding Students Award".
