A poetry competition dedicated to the historic homeland is being organized by SAE Region of former USSR countries, within the context of March 25th anniversary events.
The competition is being carried out through the website: www.greeks-su.com, with an aim to promote Greek culture, forge the unity of the Diaspora, offer social and patriotic education for the new generation, and strengthen the national conscience of Greeks abroad, as indicated in a notice issued by SAE Region of former USSR countries. In previous years, www.greeks-su.com organized competitions for the best essay, best photograph and best crossword puzzle. The theme of this year’s competition was proposed by the SAE Youth Committee of the Region.
Those wishing to enter the competition can send their own poem dedicated to Greece (in Greek or Russian, with at least four quatrains), by March 20, 2012, the latest, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Winners will be awarded prizes and also have the opportunity to take part in pilgrimages to the holy sites of historic Pontus, while the best poems will be published in Diaspora publications, circulated in the region of SAE of former USSR countries.
