Adam Mickiewicz Junior High School won “Battle of intellects”
Modern history of Poland, Polish achievements in cinematography, literature and science – today the competition “Battle of intellects” organized by the Embassy of Poland in Lithuania took place in the House of Polish Culture.
It was a quiz on knowledge of Poland. The questions concerned not only textbook knowledge. One of the rounds was devoted to the 25th anniversary of democratic changes in Poland, the 10th anniversary of Poland’s accession to the EU and the 15th anniversary of Poland’s accession to NATO.
The team from Adam Mickiewicz Junior High School became a winner of the competition. They received a prize in form of an integration trip to Warsaw. Józef Kraszewki Junior High School took second place and Szymon Konarski High School took the third one.
“I congratulate warmly the winners and wish them a great trip to Warsaw. You will visit plenty of interesting places there, including the Copernicus Science Center, the Warsaw Rising Museum and many other attractions” – Maria Ślebioda, a counselor-head of the political-economic section of the Embassy of Poland in Vilnius congratulated the winners.
