EFG EUROBANK “INVESTS” IN EDUCATION

On Monday 2 October 2006 the best students of the Messenia region received their awards from Eurobank EFG during a special ceremony at the Elite Hotel in Kalamata: this was the 7th in a series of 32 events organized by the Bank in the Greek prefectures as part of its “The Great Moment for Education” sponsorship programme.

The sponsorship programme, "The Great Moment for Education”, which was launched by Eurobank EFG in 2003, is implemented with the support of the Ministry of Education and is one of the most important sponsorship initiatives of the Eurobank EFG Group that has chosen to be actively involved within the community by lending its support to the fields of Education, Culture, Environment and Sports. Through this programme, awards have been given until today to 4,000 students in Greece who have obtained the highest marks and who are the most vibrant message of progress for our society.

The main aim of the “The Great Moment for Education” programme is to reward young people's efforts in their pursuit of knowledge and to recognize those who have achieved excellence and who represent a prospect and guarantee for the future.
