ANNUAL BOOK AWARDS FOR ACHIEVEMENT IN THE NATURAL SCIENCES
Women’s education is a pre-requisite to alleviate poverty

LTG awards book prizes to be handed to female learners currently in Grade 12. The learners are nominated by the science departments of the respective schools chosen by the LTG members. The prizes will go to girls that have not necessarily achieved the best marks in examinations, but who have made consistent effort to continue their study of the sciences. The aim of these book prizes is to encourage young women in the study of the sciences.
