Mar Sánchez Pérez del Pulgar, a student of the Technological Baccalaureate at the Canigó Trilingual School in Barcelona, has received the 3rd prize in the 40th edition of the Arnau Vilanova Philosophy Awards. They are organized by the Official Catalonian College of Doctors and Graduates in Philosophy and Letters and Sciences.
In its 40th edition, the Arnau Vilanova Philosophy Awards are deemed the oldest awards for Secondary students in Catalonia. They are also the only ones in the Autonomous Community dedicated to Philosophy instruction and education.
The awards are designed to recognize the best Philosophical works in three different categories: secondary school teachers, high school students, and university students.
Mar Sánchez, Canigó School student, 3rd prize winner.
The winning work is entitled: “The person in a terminal illness situation. Palliative care and its application during the COVID-19 pandemic”. The Canigó student dedicates the first part to making a deep analysis of the person from an anthropological point of view.
The Jury was made up of Àlex Rocas (president), Jordi Beltran (secretary), Yolanda Navarro and Ambròs Domingo. All have highlighted the high level and quality of the works presented in this edition.
In the ceremony, which took place on September 21st, the dean of the College and president of the award jury, Àlex Rocas, highlighted that “they are the only awards dedicated to philosophy instruction and education,” at a time when “teaching to think seems to be frowned upon.”
From Canigó we want to congratulate Mar for the quality of her work and for the well deserved recognition obtained.
