As of April 1, essays have been collected from Capital Region students hoping to win the 2014 Essay Contest for a free trip to Russia.
The contest will result in 2 winners who will travel to Tula this summer with a Russian speaking chaperone spending 10 days in a camp, visiting cultural sites in Tula and enjoying an overnight in Moscow. Reviews of the essays have commenced by our panel of judges with a tentative decision deadline of April 25.
Until then, thank you again for participating in our contest and good luck to all who entered.
2013 was another incredibly active year for the Alliance. We held the Biennial Olympiad for high school students and sent the two winners, from Guilderland and Tamera high schools to Tula. We hosted visitors from Tolstoy Pedagogical University, held our Songs at Sunset fundraiser, collaborated on a major grant application and forged a new relationship with the Moscow Ballet. Our goals for 2014 aim to be just as ambitious.
With your generous donation and the efforts of volunteers and friends in both the Capital Region and Tula, Russia we can continue to make great strides in achieving concrete and measurable goals to promote citizen diplomacy between us and Russia. TO DONATE NOW — CLICK HERE.
