    Ambassador Marcin Bosacki presented the Ambassadors Book Award in Polish for 2014 to Nicolas Gatto, Dorothy Krolak, and Carine Sevigny for their outstanding scholarly record of performance in their study of the Polish language.

     

     

    The ceremony took place during the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures’ annual end-of-year Book Award Party to celebrate the achievements of students in its many programs. The books were presented to the selected students by distinguished members of the Ottawa diplomatic community.

     

    Three students, awarded by Ambassador Bosacki, have pursued courses of study in Polish Language and Culture at the University of Ottawa run by Prof. Richard Sokolosky. During the ceremony Professor Sokolosky reminded everyone that  the award was inaugurated twenty years ago thanks to cooperation between the Department and the Embassy of Poland in Ottawa. In the initial years awards were given only for Polish studies.  Over time however the award has included other fields, so that now it is awarded to students in 11 different language programs.
