The Nobel Prize Award ceremony. The Nobel Prize is a prestigious award given to people who’ve made outstanding contributions to science, medicine, economics, literature, and peace. Winners of this award include Marie Curie, who discovered radium, and Chinese chemist Tu Youyou, who developed artemisinin. I wish I could share the joy of winning a Nobel Prize with them and cheer them on.

The Ultimate Song Chart Awards presentation. A lot of young people in Hong Kong listen to English songs or Mandarin songs, but I love Canto because it’s my mother tongue. I think we should support Cantonese artists. If I went to the awards ceremony, I’d be able to see my favourite singer, Kay Tse. How I wish I could really go!
Ng Wun-ting, 13, Maryknoll Fathers’ School
I’d like to go to the Golden Disc Award. It’s one of the biggest K-pop awards ceremonies in South Korea. If I went, I would be able to see all my K-pop idols and watch their performances live. Their songs and dance performances would definitely help me to relax.
Tracy Wong Yan-tung, 15, Fung Kai No. 1 Secondary School
If I had the choice, I’d like to receive an invitation to the Academy Awards. I’m a big fan of the cinema and it would give me the chance to see some big-screen stars in real life. Receiving an invitation to the Oscars would also give me an excuse to travel and see the West Coast of the United States!
Joshua Lee, 21, University of Hong Kong
I’d love to go to the Indian Filmfare Awards! I’d be so excited to see (and possibly even meet) my favourite Bollywood stars!
Joy Pamnani, 21, University of Hong Kong
I’d like an invitation to the Oscars. It’s one of the biggest film awards, so many of the attendees will be super famous. I chose this award ceremony so I could meet all of the famous celebrities, such as Leonardo DiCaprio.
Lee Chun-man, 13, Maryknoll Fathers’ School
Definitely the Grammy’s! I’ve been obsessed with music since I was young, especially pop music. During this class suspension period, I’ve been listening to songs 24/7. It’d be even cooler if I could have a chance to see talented artists perform live right in front of my eyes, and what better occasion than at the Grammy’s?
Chloe Lau Hong-ching, 14, St Mary’s Canossian College
The International Congress of Mathematicians. It’s the largest conference that invites only top mathematicians under the age of 40. Even if I wasn't there to receive the Fields Medal, the greatest honour for a mathematician, I’d still be excited to learn from all the brilliant minds.
Nester Chik Yiu-kai, 17, Sing Yin Secondary School
Definitely the Mnet Asian Music Awards (Mama)! It’s usually held in Hong Kong and I’ve always wanted to go. So many music fans fly into the city just to watch the award show. I’d love to experience it!
Anushka Purohit, 20, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
I’d love to receive an invitation to the Nobel Prize Award ceremony for literature because I like literature. I’d be able to meet a lot of top-notch writers there.
