“We need children who question, discover, and create.”

The evening, attended by guests from the fields of education, civil society, business, and art, was presented by designer, artist, and educator Bager Akbay and the young members of the Imagination Center. Emre Alettin Keskin, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Imagination Center/Association, shared the excitement of the award ceremony in his speech. “Without a child’s curiosity, there is no learning in education… We contribute to children and young people following their curiosity and realizing their potentials by developing comprehensive and valuable programs and projects such as Curiosity Scholarships, From Child to Child Academy, Ask, Discover, Create Workshops, and Journey to Imagination. We need children who question, discover, and create, and we need places where children contribute. Imagination has given birth to civilizations in these lands, and with this power, we continue our journey of imagination, growing and developing more each year, and most importantly, touching the lives of more children. Last year, we rewarded the concepts of imagination, curiosity, and skill for the first time by pursuing one of our dreams. This year, we are excited to organize the second Imagination Awards. I sincerely congratulate the individuals and institutions who received awards at our ceremony sponsored by Akbank and thank all our sponsors for their support,” he concluded.

“Not for children, but with children!”

Hüseyin Sayın, the President of the Executive Board of the Imagination Awards, stated, “The Imagination Awards once again showed us how dreams established in every aspect of life inspire the future. All our category awards reflect the concrete expression of a dream, a project, and a success. With our understanding of not for children, but with children, we, as the Imagination Center/Association, organized the Imagination Awards for the first time last year when no institution or organization in Turkey had rewarded the concept of imagination. As in 2022, this year’s evaluation process took place with precision and impartiality, with the active participation of the Executive Board, Research Board, and Selection Committee, each consisting of 50% children and young people. In line with our philosophy of not for children and young people but with children and young people, we will continue to work wholeheartedly as the Imagination Center/Association. Congratulations to those who have been awarded for inspiring us with their dreams in every aspect of life. We will continue to transform the future together and reward dreams,” sharing his excitement.
