Scholarships for gifted students – summary of the first year of the joint project by LPP and the Municipality of Brześć Kujawski
The first year of the scholarship project implemented under the Local Programme for the Support of Education of Gifted Children and Youth, partnered by the Polish clothing company, LPP, has come to an end. As part of this cooperation, 26 students from Brześć Kujawski primary schools were honoured for their academic achievements in the 2021/2022 school year. Scholarships of PLN 250 had been awarded over a period of 10 months. Continuing the activities aimed at the youngest residents under the “Brześć Kujawski w Centrum Uwagi” [“Focus on Brześć Kujawski”] programme, in June this year LPP invited the awarded scholarship recipients to the company’s headquarters in Gdańsk and to the Distribution Centre in Pruszcz Gdański.
–As Mayor, I am proud that we have so many young and ambitious students in Brześć Kujawski who are able to assiduously work for their future. I am glad that as a municipality we can support talented children and youth – it is a great satisfaction and joy to be able to reward their work and commitment. I hope that the programme will prove to be an incentive to take on further challenges and motivation to achieve further successes for the entire school community. I would like to thank LPP for its commitment to the initiatives undertaken and for inviting the students to Gdańsk – comments Tomasz Chymkowski, Mayor of Brześć Kujawski.
During the trip, students got to know the LPP company “inside out” and explored the arcana of designing clothes and accessories in the Cropp brand’s product office. The meeting was an opportunity for them to talk with print designers about the search for inspiration and their involvement in the creation of collections. In Pruszcz Gdański, the scholarship holders discovered advanced technologies based on artificial intelligence that streamline logistics processes in one of the most modern distribution centres in Central and Eastern Europe. The culmination of the visit to LPP was participation in a professional photo shoot, during which the young people learnt what the work of a photographer, make-up artist or model looks like by going through and discussing in detail each stage of the photo shoot. The students also learnt about the process of creating perfect shots of Reserved brand products, and acted as models themselves.
– Once again, we would like to congratulate all the recognised students, who demonstrated not only exceptional talent, but also perseverance in acquiring knowledge. We are delighted that, thanks to our long-standing cooperation with the Brześć Kujawski local government, we can offer young people a better start in adulthood and support them in the development of their interests. We hope that the visit to the LPP headquarters in Gdańsk was a valuable experience for the young people and an additional motivation to broaden their horizons – emphasized Jacek Kujawa, vice president of the LPP Management Board, president of LPP Logistics.
