What is the Are Hovstad Award?

The Are Hovstad Award was initiated in 2018 to pay tribute to Are Hovstad for the establishment of MOT in South Africa, his contribution and support of MOT, and his love for the betterment of the youth in South Africa!

Are is a founding member of MOT South Africa. He lived the values of MOT and therefore the MOT SA board initiated the annual award to honor him and to recognize others who have demonstrated and lived the MOT spirit and commitment in the bettering of their community during the year.
