YOUNG PEOPLE WITH A SURPRISING PRESENT
The largest multimedia quiz Young People Great Deeds was held at the Liberty Square in Novi Sad. European Youth Capital Novi Sad has created the largest polygon for the play. For one night, the facade of Vojvođanska Banka of 300m2 was a large canvas – through mapping, multimedia performances and interactive web application, with telephones, knowledge and desire to play, Novi Sad has made the most massive quiz in the world.
The plan was for the winner of the quiz to get the prize trip of 1000 EUR, however, since he did not show up after the announcement, it was decided that the prize be donated to Svratište za decu i mlade of Novi Sad.
“We have been informed that the winner was at the Square, that he got the message by the application, but for some reason, he did not come, so we mutually decided to simply redirect the prize to someone who certainly needed it. Therefore, today, we are at Svratište za decu i mlade, because it is very important to us to immediately implement what was said yesterday”, Vukašin Grozdanović, OPENS Coordinator says.
“I would like to thank OPENS and citizens who participated in the quiz yesterday and who mutually helped that Svratište win the award. On our side, we will try to use that prize in the best way possible and to bring as many children as possible to a short vacation, so that they can swim and enjoy with their teachers”, Vuk Kockar, the coordinator of Svratište za decu i mlade ulice says.
The idea was simply to promote the youth as the time in which young people have their rights and possibilities to make great deeds and positive changes in the society. By showing the famous historical people who were successful in different fields in the period when they were young, we demystify that the field of successfulness and creativity is the time of maturity. In that sense, the response of all people gathered at the Square at the moment when the winner was not responding after the time defined by the rules of the quiz is very encouraging. We have mutually decided who get to go on vacation, and we believe that is the only way to go forward.
