Donation of good spiritFor the 23rd time the Guild in December 2012 heightened the spirit of a group of students - one in each of Aalborg´s colleges. They got the Guild´s Prize of Good Spirit. The colleges select among their students one who “by his/her good mood, happy disposition and positive attitude is instrumental in spreading good spirit and good friendship and thus inspire teachers and fellow students to act in a positive and more enjoyable way”

It is not because of diligence and skill - but it is very desirable if they can be combined, said chief bencher Niels Voss Hansen, when he presented one of this year’s Prize of Good Spirit. It was to Mathias Schrøder who is a student at Nørresundby Gymnasium (= college).

At the other colleges the prize - which consists of a diploma and a modest cheque - was presented by the school in connection with the celebrations at the final school day of the year.

The chief bencher said at the presentation at Nørresundby Gymnasium, that the cheque ought to be used for not too serious a purpose. The applause from the audience seemed to indicate that the hint was taken.
