His Excellency Claude Cottalorda, Ambassador of Monaco to France, attended the 58th Award Ceremony of the Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet Foundation for Vocation on Monday, December 11, where he presented one of the prizes.

This Foundation, chaired by Elisabeth Badinter, offers financial awards young men and women who are particularly deserving in different fields of activity, from literature to sport, science, research and the environment.

During the Ceremony held at the Edouard VII Theatre in Paris, the Ambassador of Monaco presented the HSH Prince Albert II Prize to Miss Mouna Lekhnati, a young 22-year-old planner, who plans to build a Smart City, thanks to her studies in technology and sustainable development.

The vocational prize will allow this young woman to finance part of her tuition fees and help her in the beginning of her future career.
