The Second Chen Jing Chinese History Teaching Awards was opened for application in November. The Awards were set up to commemorate Ms Chen Jing (1922–1992), who devoted all her life to the teaching of Chinese History in Hong Kong. She was deeply loved and respected by her students. In order to carry forward her legacy, her family and Mingyuan Foundation for Chinese Culture and Education made the donation to reward outstanding Chinese history teachers at secondary schools and to encourage them in endeavours or enhancements of teaching, research, innovation and personal training.
The Research Centre for Contemporary Chinese Culture is responsible for handling all matters related to the Awards, including the appointment of scholars to establish the “Chen Jing Chinese History Teaching Awards” management committee, which is responsible for all decisions, including the formulation and revision of the rules of the Awards.
