Europe Day in Lutsk 2018
Since 2003 we have been celebrating Europe Day in Ukraine. Our city becomes a platform for acquaintance with European Union countries, their culture, history and customs. It’s a holiday of peace and unity, to which all enthusiastic and curious people join.
This year Lutsk welcomed 12 pupils from partner cities: 5 from the Republic of Poland (Rzeszów, Zamość, Lublin, Olsztyn, Bartoszyce) and 1 from the Republic of Belarus. Together with 25 pupils from Lutsk schools they took part in the European Olympiad. 37 participants wrote tests and creative tasks concerning knowledge about European Union and about its countries-members. This year questions were dedicated to the environmental issues, particularly ecology preserving.
And if for several years the victory was traditionally received by students of the regional center, this year the winner's diploma will be carried home by Michał Worek from Rzeszów (the Republic of Poland). The second place is taken by Stanislav Dashchenko from Lutsk (school № 25), and the third one – by Michał Pranagal from Lublin (the Republic of Poland). The winners of the Olympiad got valuable prizes, and all the participants – symbolic presents.
