One of the most heart-warming highlights of the year is the award ceremony for the annual Lufthansa Christmas card design competition. Children from the Johann-Joseph-Gronewald School, a special support school for hearing and communication came to the Lufthansa Headquarters in Cologne to collect their prizes. Simone Menne, Chief Financial Officer of Deutsche Lufthansa, and Angela Spizig, Mayor of Cologne, congratulated the children who had created the top 20 designs. Jan Hefner, aged 14, was awarded first prize and his card will be sent all over the world by Lufthansa Group companies. The card was adapted and printed by a workshop for the disabled in Cologne.
Lufthansa Consulting awarded a special prize to Kenzo Ngan, aged 7, for his wonderful Christmas tree decorated with the flags of many nations. We have adapted his design for our digital holiday card which accompanies the end of year message from our Managing Director, Dr Andreas Jahnke. We were delighted to chat with Kenzo, Jan and their classmates after the ceremony over a feast of chicken nuggets and fries.
