In the evening of June 22, 2018 the mirror hall of the Writer’s House in Tbilisi provided the solemn setting for the winners of this year’s Georgian History Competition that was initiated and implemented by DVV International and its Georgian partner organizations GAHE (Georgian Association of History Educators) and SovLab (Soviet Past Research Laboratory) for the first time. In front of around 70 participants and teachers the three winners coming from different schools in Tbilisi and Kutaisi were honored, celebrated and received their prices. Special certificates were also handed over to three pupils who produced a video as their competition entry and to a teacher from Svaneti who assisted several students by taking part in the competition.

In total ten selected participants of the competition can now also apply for an international History Camp in Berlin organized by the German Körber foundation, which will take place in November 2018.
