A Mondialogo secondary school competition of intellectual endeavours on cultural heritage and national cultural identity is on
A Mondialogo secondary school competition of intellectual endeavours on cultural heritage and national cultural identity is on. Today, its international jury gathered on the UNESCO headquarters to announce finalists. Two Russian teams are among them. Arranged under the UNESCO aegis, with Daimler-Chrysler Foundation support, the contest initially gathered approximately 1,500 school teams from 126 countries-boys and girls between 15 and 18 age. They were to invent a game, make an art work, start a newspaper or a website, write a story, and suchlike. Competing items were selected for the finals not only for their artistic merits but for closeness and inventiveness of teamwork on collective projects. The top 25 works are on show in an exposition that opened on the UNESCO headquarters in Paris today. Each exhibit is brainchild of two school teams from two countries. A student and a teacher will represent every finalist team at an international symposium, Mondialogo, to gather in Spain's Barcelona, September 17 into 20. It will announce the three winner teams, each entitled to prize money, 500 to 1,500 Euro. Representing Russia in Barcelona will be the Vivat team of Volzhsky, a town in the Volgograd Region, and the Peace for All, St. Petersburg. Both Russian teams have a fine chance to get to the contest top, Brazilian prose writer Paulo Coelho said to RIA Novosti. One of the world's-and Russia's-best-read contemporary fiction writers is on the jury. Private foundations' activism to help UNESCO with the contest is among its greatest achievements-"an honourable manifestation of the business community's social responsibility," remarked the author of sensational parabolic novels.
