Young Cultural Ambassadors Program Winners

Announcing the 15 Winners of the Young Cultural Ambassadors Program

We are delighted to introduce 15 bright high school students who have been selected to join “Young Cultural Ambassadors” – a new program undertaken by the American Turkish Association of DC to engage youth who are interested in building bridges between societies.
To mark the 15th anniversary of the annual Turkish Festival, ATA-DC’s 15 Young Cultural Ambassadors will represent future leaders of our community in various activities throughout Turkish Heritage Month in September. This program aims to contribute participating students’ academic and extracurricular activities portfolio. While promoting Turkish culture in their schools and the festival, they will have the opportunity to strengthen their leadership and cross-cultural communication skills through meetings at the US Congress and programs at major institutions. All selected students will be invited and recognized on the main stage at the Turkish Festival on Sunday, September 24th to receive their certificates of appreciation.
Our Board of Directors congratulates each student on their tremendous success and placement in this special program and thank their parents and educators for their encouragement during the application process.
We also extend our special thanks to Turkish Coalition of America for their valuable support to make this program a success!
Warm regards,
ATA-DC Turkish Festival Committee
