On October 20, in Krasnokamensk in Cultural Center "Dauria" an award ceremony of the Youth Educational Forum II ECOLINE-2012 was held. It was organized by the ARMZ Uranium Holding and JSC PIMCU.
This year students of Krasnokamensk schools, gymnasia and training colleges had the opportunity to participate in three competitions: youth photography contest ECOART and youth social ads contest "Under SOS sign", which had been already held previously. The participants took part in the journalistic work contest "Slovo" ("Word"), held for the first time. Popularity of the event has grown significantly since the time of the first ECOLINE. The number of papers submitted for ECOART increased from 350 to more than 1,100. The contest "Under SOS sign" received more than 70 works against 25 in 2011. An innovation of this year was the journalistic contest "Slovo", where participants had to prepare a paper in one of the genres (essay, interview, report or investigation) on the proposed topic. Organizers received in total over 70 works from the applicants. Many participants did not stop at just one contest, and applied to participate in several contests.
Deadline for submission of works was on October 8. After that, during a week the contest committee was reviewing and evaluating the works to form the long list of participants. Among them, award contenders to be included in the contest short lists were selected.
The names of 36 winners were announced from the stage of "Dauria". First place winners received laptops as a gift from organizers, silver prize winners received tablets, and third place winners were awarded with MP3-players. Awards were presented by ARMZ and PIMCU managers and representatives of regional and local authorities. During breaks between the announcements of winners, ARTnova Project creative team entertained the guests of the party with the performance specially prepared for the event.
