- The panel will meet in November to judge the projects and determine the winners
- Up to 65,000 euros will be distributed to make these initiatives a reality
Fundación Cepsa has received a total of 328 projects from across all regions in which the awards are run: Canary Islands, Campo de Gibraltar, Autonomous Community of Madrid, Huelva province, Portugal and Colombia.
The panel will meet in mid-November to assess the different projects and select the winners, as well as the two projects by Campo de Gibraltar candidates for this year's 'Special Employee Prize.'
The aim of the awards is to recognize and promote social initiatives that foster the inclusion and well-being of disadvantaged groups or individuals, as well as to promote these values among Cepsa staff, who sponsor these projects, introducing the entities interested in participating in these awards. For the second year, projects combining the social aspect with a just ecological transition will be valued.
The financial endowment of the Awards in Campo de Gibraltar is up to 65,000 euros with a maximum funding to each winning initiative of 15,000 euros. In total, some €435,000 will be awarded to the best social projects in all the areas in which the competition is being run.
Estrella Blanco, head of Fundación Cepsa in Campo de Gibraltar, wished "the best of luck to participants this year, so that they can make their social and sustainable projects a reality."
Employees’ Special Award
Since 2012, Cepsa staff themselves have given out an Employees’ Special Award as part of the Social Value Awards. Cepsa professionals will choose five winners from among the 14 projects selected by the various panels in Spain, Colombia and Portugal, and the results will be announced in mid-December.
