Literature contest "Magic Word"
16 March 2017
Press Office of the Amber Museum
Amber has attracted people with its beauty and mysterious qualities since the ancient times. Many nations made up myths and legends about it, in Russ "the white-hot alatyr stone" was mentioned in fairy-tales, songs and spells, in all times poets, inspired by the beauty of this stone, composed poems about it. Today we offer students of 10–17 years old to write own pieces about amber – poems, fairy-tales, stories, essays.
The contest theme can be developed in different ways: a story about the origin of the Baltic gem, a fairy-tale about the miraculous stone and its magical qualities, which were attributed to amber for many centuries, essay about the role of amber in the contemporary culture or poetry glorifying beauty of the sun stone.
You can send your works to the museum until 15 April 2017 by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the topic "Contest" in .doc format or bring personally to the Amber Museum to the Department for Scientific- and Museum Educational Work (museum's administration, office 20).
