Ambassador Awards 2019

On 6 Dec 2019 the Australian Embassy held its Annual Australian Alumni Celebration, this time incorporating an inaugural Ambassador Awards event to celebrate the achievements of our Lao Australian Alumni.

To all of our Lao Australian Alumni from both private and scholarships!

To recognize the extraordinary contributions of our alumni at this year’s annual celebration on 6 December 2019, the Australian Embassy in Laos will be giving out three special Ambassador Awards for Australian alumni who are nominated under the categories of Innovation and initiative; Women’s Leadership; and Male Champions of Change.
