Magic Word 2021

Event duration:
on 23 April 2021

Amber has been attracting people from the ancient times with its beauty and mysterious properties. Many peoples made myths and legends about it, in Russ "white burning stone alatyr" was mentioned in tales, songs and spells, in all times poets inspired by the beauty of this stone wrote poems about it. Today we are proposing boys and girls of 10-17 years old to write their own works about amber.

Stories can be submitted in two main categories: "Best Poetic Work" and "Best Prose". Theme of the contest can be explored in various ways: story about the origin of the Baltic gem, tale of the miraculous stone and its magical properties, that it was believed to have for many centuries, narration about the role od=f amber in the modern culture, or a poetic work glorifying the beauty of the sunstone.

We have also established a special category – "Story told by a Showpiece". Choose any showpiece from our museum and imagine, what it would tell guests, if it could talk, what it thinks about, what it could tell about itself. Stories submitted in this category are considered separately.

You should send your works to the museum until 16 April 2021 to the e-mail prosvet@ambermuseum.ru with "Contest"in the theme line in .doc format. Winners will be announced on 23 April.

Inquiries: 8 (4012) 53-82-19 and 8(4012) 46-65-50.
