The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program Learning Partnership
Mathematica Honored with Gold Hermes Creative Award
Each year, the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) recognizes the outstanding efforts of professionals in those fields by hosting the Hermes Creative Award. This year, Mathematica Policy Research received a Gold Hermes Creative Award in the public relations video category.
The video, produced as part of the Alumni Voices research project carried out by Mathematica for The MasterCard Foundation, features young people from across Africa participating in The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program. The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program provides access to secondary and higher education for young people who are committed to giving back to their communities. In the video, MasterCard Foundation Scholars describe their hopes and professional aspirations, their commitment to improving their communities, and how the Program provided them with opportunities to achieve their full potential.
AMCP was established in 1995 as a means to honor the outstanding achievements of communications professionals who contribute their talents to public service and charitable organizations. Rich Clement, a Mathematica multimedia specialist and producer of the video, said, “I’m gratified that Mathematica received this honor for our work on the Alumni Voices video. But it was being able to share The MasterCard Foundation Scholars’ experiences that has been the biggest reward of all.”
