For the second year running the Adeje awards to the borough’s best secondary school students has been won by young women, three from the El Galeón secondary school and four from the Los Olivos school.

The ‘Jóvenes Talento’ (talented youth) prizes, whose aim is to reward effort and work done during the school year, is for secondary school students in public education centres in Adeje. The winners this year are Yaiza Sánchez Mederos, Noemi Parpaiola, Tian Yao, all studying in El Galeón, and Elena León Díaz, Tracy Méndez Díaz. Leila Boukyaou Delgado and Valentina Sebestyenl, students in Los Olivos. Each young women received €500 and Adeje councillor for youth affairs, Zebenzui Chinea Linares, made the presentation.

“These awards were created to reflect the worth of studying, to encourage a culture of dedication and effort, of excellence, and above all of a willingness to learn among our young people” reflected the councillor, adding that next year they would also be taking linguistic ability into consideration, to encourage more people to study and achieve proficiency in a second or third language.
