On February 15, 2013, the Global Health and Education Foundation completed it’s first annual year-long educational program, the ‘Global Natural History Day’ with rousing success following a successful ‘Kenneth E. Behring Discovery Trip’ that took the winners across the United States of America, from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles and San Francisco. Out of more than 1,000 entrants, 45 students and teachers winning their respective Global Natural History Day contests in Beijing, Tianjin, and Shanghai (local and international) went on the educational trip of a lifetime, organized by Educational Trailblazers and generously sponsored by Mr. Kenneth E. Behring.
During the winners’ action packed 10-day tour of the USA, students and educators were given exclusive VIP-access and treatment to some of the most internationally recognized educational and public institutions in the USA, including: the National Museum of American History; National Museum of American History; Capitol Hill; Disneyland; Universal Studios; Stanford University; University of California, Berkeley; Blackhawk Museum; and the University of Maryland, home of the National History Day headquarters.
The culmination of this 10-day adventure was a private award reception hosted by Mr. Kenneth E. Behring at his mansion in Blackhawk, California. During the award ceremony, Mr. Behring personally awarded each Global Natural History Day winner with a medal, certificate, and gift for their successful participation in Global Natural History Day 2012.The final awards ceremony was the perfect ending to a hugely successful Global Natural History Day program debut. Congratulations to all who participated in last year’s contest.
We look forward to seeing you in South Africa next year!
