Embassy Lisbon once again supported Catholic University’s annual Prémio Traduzir, an event that recognizes outstanding works of translation by Portuguese high school students throughout the country. This was the 16th edition of the competition and had around 1,000 participants.

The American Embassy supported the initiative with gifts of an I-Pod Shuffle and books to the three top winners and their teachers. Public Affairs Officer Mark Pannell participated in the awards ceremony on May 11 at Lisbon’s Catholic University campus, along with Catholic University students, teachers and professors.
