A Promising Diversity in Georgian History Competition
Entries to the 2021/2022 Georgian History Competition came from all parts of the country, even from really remote areas. There is a big variety of formats, including videos and photo collections. One entry from Georgia’s southern region was even written in the Armenian language, adding to the diversity of the competition.
Mariam Kereselidze, project coordinator of DVV International Georgia, explains her first reaction to the results: “The general impression after receiving all the entries is: they are of rather good quality. I think the students have worked well with their teachers. Also, the trainings and the regular consultation meetings with the tutors as well as with the students helped them to get the task almost 100% right and to approach it creatively. Let's see what the jury will have to say.”
The Georgian jury started its work right after the closing date at the end of May. Six jury members, among them David Tinikashvili from the Caucasus University in Tbilisi, are currently busy evaluating the 34 entries that were submitted. In their meeting on 11 July, they will discuss all entries and select the winners. The competition’s results will be presented in an award ceremony during the summer.
