Every year, there are many different events in the social life of students that would be impossible to accomplish and a variety of activities that would not have been possible without the support of student supporters. The Student Council of VUAS expressed gratitude to all the people who have helped with both financial and moral support.
During the solemn performance, VUAS youth and middle-aged dance groups “Strautuguns”, choir “Ventus”, as well as Nata Katrīna Stepanska and Eduards Bariss from Ventspils Music High School expressed themselves with various performances.
This year's Annual Award ceremony also rewarded the course war winning team and gave the donations to Ventspils centre for families and children with disabilities “Cimdiņš”.
The event was created with the financial support of the project of the Ventspils City Council.
