A historical search for the finalists of the regional competition “Land of Heroes” was held in the Murmansk Regional Museum of Local Lore. During the tests, students from Murmansk, Polarny, Umba and Monchegorsk answered questions about the Great Patriotic War. The boys were looking for clues in the museum’s unique exposition, which presents artifacts from the time of the heroic defense of the Arctic.
All teams finished the race before the allotted 60 minutes, showing a high level of knowledge. The best were the members of Pogodinci Krew from Polarni. They gave 14 correct answers to 15 difficult questions from the mission. The team received the main prize of the competition – a certificate for a trip to the Moscow Victory Museum on Poklonnaya Hill.
Trailing by 0.5 points, the No. 2 team from the city of military glory Polari High School Patriots was up to the task of the mission. Members of the Eureka team from school No. 23 in the city of Murmansk answered 12 questions correctly. 11 points – for the teams “Prometheus” from OU #4 in the village of Umba and “Vaganovtsev” from OU #1 named after Arkadiy Vaganov in the city of Monchegorsk.
We remind you that the contest “Land of Heroes” was launched in the Murmansk region in September to familiarize young northerners with the heroic history of their native land and help them understand at what cost the Victory was achieved. In the first stage, students from grades 7-11 had to team up and make battle sheets styled as historical documents from the Great Patriotic War. From 33 submitted applications, specialists from the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Education and Science, the Museum of Local Lore, the State Archives, historians and subject specialists selected the five best battle lists. For their creation, the young authors turn to archival data, memoirs and historical documents.
