"Out of all the projects and events for the bicentennial of the Revolution of 1821, the ones that the Committee appreciated the most were those organized by schools; kindergartens, primary schools, junior high schools, high schools, and universities. Those that involved children, our country's new generation," the President of the "Greece 2021" Committee, Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki, emphasized, speaking at the Ministry of Education's leading event for the 200 years after the Revolution of 1821.
During the event, which took place on Saturday, November 27, at the Athens Concert Hall, primary and secondary education students who had participated individually or in teams in the painting and short-filmmaking competition for the Greek Revolution were awarded their prizes. Mrs. Angelopoulos presented the awards to students from Skopelos, Patras, and Athens. In accordance with the measures against the pandemic, there was a simultaneous online awards presentation.
The award ceremony was part of a two-day anniversary event during which the children who participated in the competition exhibited their paintings, and the schools played their short films on the screen. The "Greece 2021" Committee participated with two important projects: "Great Little Heroes" played on the screens in the foyer of the Concert Hall, and the documentary "By the light of thine eyes: 200 YEARS OF GREECE" was shown today.
