2002 Tibra Awards|
We are launching the second annual Tibra Awards, a community supported
program for honoring distinguished young Libyan women. The first round
of the program honored five excellent finalists, awarded an academic
scholarship of $1000, and was well received by the community
worldwide. With your direct participation and generous support, we hope
this year to grow the program and award two academic scholarships.
Dr. Gamal Khalil, who was a judge in the first round, has joined the
founders to form the Board of Trustees. The legal process has been
started to establish the Tibra Foundation as a non-profit organization
on the local and federal levels. The attorney in charge estimates the
process for federal registration will take a few months. A financial
summary and budget are continuously updated on the Tibra site.
You are invited to join the Tibra Awards celebration of community
pride in Libyan young women. The program needs your help in raising
funds, recruiting judges and encouraging nominations. Our goal is to
have five judges, five finalists, and raise $2,500. We believe the
rewards of presenting our community in a positive light and investing
in our young leaders are well worth the effort.
