Winners of the Youth on the Trail of World Heritage scholarship

We are pleased to announce to you hereby the winners of the scholarship of 10 000$ CAN given to a twinning of two schools for the 2017-2018 edition.

Following the reception of the scholarship applications, the works and reports were sent to the Jury, formed by the members of the Board of Directors. The finalists of the scholarship were the twinning of:

  • Icherisheher-Tunis
  • Ejmiatsin-Évora
  • Icherisheher- St.Petersburg
  • Ejmiatsin-St.Petersburg
  • Quito-Oaxaca

Despite the impressively good applications received, the jury had to make one choice, and therefore the winners of the scholarship are EJMIATSIN-ST.PETERSBURG. Congratulations!

Both schools will be receiving its share of the scholarship. The students of Ejmiatsin have already had the chance to visit St.Petersburg in March, and now it is time for the Russian students to visit their twins in Ejmiatsin at the end of Spring 2018. More news to come…!

In the name of the OWHC, we want to thank all the participants. The 2017-2018 edition of the program was more than successful and we hope to see even more cities participate in the next editions.
