Russian American History Contest

Russian American History Contest

PH International, with the support of the U.S. Embassy in the Russian Federation, is proud to announce:

Russian American History Video Contest 2019 – America in Russia

Deadline: January 14, 2019

We invite teams consisting of three students (8-10th grades) and a teacher, to create a video, animation, comic book panels, artwork, or a cartoon (hereafter referred to as “the video”) that describes an American object, idea or innovation that can be found in Russia today and serves as an example of our shared history and values.

The process:

  • Create a team of 4 (3 students, 1 teacher).
  • Do research. You might find something from America in your community owned by a friend or relative, or you may find something in a nearby museum or school. You might also find your subject through online searches. It could be a physical object, or it could be an invention or innovation (technological, cultural, linguistic, or otherwise) that has survived until today. But it must exist in Russia.
  • Make a video, cartoon, animation, or film your comic book story or artistic creation.
  • Upload your video and submit before January 14!

The winners will travel to the United States in July 2019, will visit Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and Alaska, and will participate in the annual Fort Ross Festival!

The deadline for the 2019 Russian American History Video Contest is January 14, 2019.
