Take Off Award 2016
The Take Off Award is an annual award ceremony hosted by the Holiday Inn Berlin Airport -Conference Centre with prizes awarded to volunteers in the areas of education, training and human compassion.
Prizes are awarded to both individuals and organizations who have provided a successful long-term commitment to volunteering and/or engaging in social initiatives related to education and training. The Take Off Award was founded in 2012 and aims to highlight respect and tolerance within society.
Citizens (or initiatives) throughout Germany who volunteer in one of the various categories and are committed to these values are invited to apply for an award. The Take Off Award winners are also honored with prize money to be spend on furthering their award-winning project.

Each year, in addition to the three main categories of education, training and humanity, a special prize is also awarded. This special prize is awarded for efforts that relate to current socio-political issues – in 2016 this was the social integration of refugees.
