The SSVP International General Council will also reward the Conference to which belongs the author of the work with the same amount that he has received. The money awarded to the Conference will be entirely assigned for social work, activity or project carried out by the Conference, represented by its President.

The General Council has received 23 literary works submitted by fellow members from the following continents: 3 from Europe, 8 from Africa and 12 from America.

We congratulate all the participants and all those who have collaborated in the organization of this contest.

“The quality of the works caught the attention of the Organizing Committee in a positive way. The General Council is very pleased with the excellent repercussion that the project of the Thematic Years has had in the SSVP, in view of deepening the work of each of the seven young students, our founders. The objective is to highlight their personal contribution to the emergence of the first Conference and the subsequent SSVP’s spreading, in order to make them known and so that people speak about them, especially about the example and influence that they can exert on the young people that are currently joining the Conferences. It was them who, in a collegial and democratic way, decided to found our Society, and we recall their legacy with respect and consideration”, stated our President General, Renato Lima.

We remind you that the next International Thematic Year 2019 will be dedicated to PAUL LAMACHE. The fellow members interested can already get ready for the presentation to the contest, which will be launched on 8th February 2019.
