The creative competition was organized by the Department of Natural Resources, Ecology and Agro-Industrial Complex of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug with the support of the “Home Towns” social investment program of the Gazprom Neft company.
The competition is aimed at developing environmental culture among local residents. Working on herbariums helped the participants expand their knowledge about the nature of their native land and preserve vivid memories of the past summer. The works were evaluated in three age categories according to five criteria. The jury included employees of the department of natural resources, ecology and agro-industrial complex of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug, experts from Gazprom Neft Shelf and the Nenets forestry branch of the National Joint-Stock Company “TsPiOOS”.
Kindergarten pupils together with their parents and schoolchildren from grades 1 to 9 took part in the competition. The works came from Naryan-Mar, Iskateley, Krasny, Telviska and Nelmin Nos.
— My mother told me about the competition. We traveled and collected leaves in Naryan-Mar and other cities, as well as in Belarus. Then they dried it together and glued it in,” said Sofya Vaskevich, a 5th grade student at City School No. 4.
