On September 1, connoisseurs of memorable places of their native land had the opportunity to have fun and get an iPad, Apple Watch and AirPods gadgets. Such gifts for the Day of the city of Glukhiv were made by the Non-governmental Organization “NASH KRAY – Sumy region” and the charitable foundation named “Our future”.
To participate in this activity, you had to pass registration on a website and compete in the “Glukhiv – capital of hetmans” quest.
Six teams took part, two participants in each. First, it was necessary to find the agent who gave the task – to guess the phone number. But in order to find out the numbers, it is necessary to find eight historical monuments according to the clues. The first three teams that completed the task faster received gifts.
The winners and owners of two iPads were Svitlana Milyaeva, musical director of the “Romashka” kindergarten, and a student of the Oleksandr Dovzhenko Hlukhiv National Pedagogical University Alina Kurai. Alina said that she has never participated in such competitions before, but this time she decided to try. But Svitlana already has such experience, but at that time she did not manage to get into the team.
“When I got a call in the evening and I was told that I would play, I didn’t believe it. Then I pulled myself together, opened the Internet and began to repeat the story of Glukhiv. And it helped a lot. Thanks to my knowledge of the sights of my hometown, I was able to quickly solve all the tasks and to come first,” – says Svetlana.
The girls say that the most complicated thing was to withstand the physical activity. But the members of the team that took second place claim that they were ready for the muscle loading. It was only a little short of victory. Vladislav Lebedev and Anna Krasnoshchekaya won the Apple Watch. Vladislav works in Kyiv, but for participation in the quest arrived in his native Glukhiv on purpose. Anna, a former medical college student, says that her brother persuaded her to participate.
“I agreed, now I don’t regret it. I liked it very much, very interesting. I recommend everyone to try, to play, to win, to live it as fully as possible,” – the girl said emotionally.
The third place was won by the team of the teacher of psychology at Oleksandr Dovzhenko Professional and pedagogical faculty of the Glukhiv National Pedagogical University Yulia Bogutsa and her student Daria Vasyk. The girls won AirPods.
“A very fascinating game in our small town. For young people, this is what they need. These quests encourage you to explore the history of your hometown. Thanks to the organizers for the opportunity, for the gifts, for the emotions,” – Yulia said.
Andrii Derkach personally congratulated the winners and presented them with valuable prizes at the festive concert in the evening.
