Snowmen in honor of the Year of the volunteer!
On January 14-15, Pavlodar hosted the first regional competition for the most original snowman, “Snowmen Fight 2020”. 100 one and a half meter snowmen were made by the guys in the square in front of the Innovative University of Eurasia.
On the eve of the contest near the InEU, tractors swept mountains of snow. On Tuesday afternoon, about two hundred people gathered in the square in front of the university — contestants, teachers, and fans. The guys came with shovels, buckets, accessories - glasses, CDs, wigs, computer keyboards and displays for decorating snowmen. Work has begun to start!
- 25 educational institutions participate in the competition. This is not only a city, but also the districts - Irtysh and Akkuly, says the organizer Shynbolat Tashekov, head of the department for educational work and social issues of InEU. - With this event, we are opening the Year of the Volunteer announced by the President in our region.
The approach to the creation of sculptures by the contestants was different: some sculpted traditional snow women, others sawed blocks of snow, others, like schoolchildren from Yamyshevo, used wooden formwork for casting ice monoliths.
- Our team is called “Snow bot”, we decided to make a snow robot, Anna Guloeva, head teacher of the Yamyshev School, explains the creation of ice cubes.
While the teams made snowmen, support groups participated in dance competitions led by the energetic Santa Claus. The children were treated to hot tea and pastries by the Dostyk teahouse, which was opened at the university by InEU student Esbol Abdraimov. Excursions around the university were carried out for chilled schoolchildren. They visited the local museum and training laboratories - they warmed themselves with benefit.
