Stockholm Challenge Finalist

The results are in for the Russian Search for Best Center Women Managers, which was part of the Global Search for the 100 Outstanding Telecenter Women Managers, a joint initiative by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and Foundation. In Russia the competition was run by the Tvoy Kurs Project.

The main objective of this international competition was to recognize the achievements of grassroots telecenter women managers/operators all over the world and the tremendous positive impact they have generated in the lives of others. As we have already
announced, all Russian participants of this contest are included in the Global 100 Oustanding Telecentre Managers list

In Russia all coordinators of Tvoy Kurs Centers could vote for their best colleagues, and THE WINNERS ARE:
I place – Irina Kotkina, A. P. Pyrerka Nenets Boarding School, Naryan Mar
II place – Ludmila Ulyeva, M. Gorky Regional Academic Library, Volgograd
III place – Alla Kostishko, Ulyanovsk State University, Ulyanovsk

These three names are well known in the Tvoy Kurs community. These women are active participants – and often initiators – of Tvoy Kurs events, forum discussions, webinars and Skype-conferences. They are well respected in their home communities, and it is largely their efforts that have promoted Tvoy Kurs in their regions, enabling hundreds and thousands of their fellow-citizens to integrate successfully into the modern digital space.

We extend our warmest congratulations to the winners! We are proud to have them as members of our large team who serve as role models of creativity, enthusiasm, willingness to share experience and constant growth and self-development.

The “VisITing Card” Video Contest , aimed at promoting Tvoy Kurs Centers and their work, has announced its winners. The authors of short videos submitted to the contest were asked to tell viewers about their home communities, about a typical workday of the local Tvoy Kurs Center and its main achievements, and about Tvoy Kurs trainees and alumni. Six Tvoy Kurs Centers sent in their submissions.

According to the vote, the winners of the contest are:

I prize – Archangelsk Tvoy Kurs Center (coordinator Yulia Maksimova)
II prize – the Tvoy Kurs Center of Volgograd State Agricultural Academy (coordinator Olga Kochetkova)

We extend our warm congratulations and sincere thanks to the winners for their willingness to tell others about their home communities, their Tvoy Kurs activities, successes and discoveries, daily challenges and celebrations.

Our figures show that Tvoy Kurs boasts more than 2,000 trainers – or, to be exact, 2,222 trainers registered in our official database as of today. We trust that all of them are people of high responsibility, professional excellence, and a kind and friendly attitude.

We have received fascinating contest applications from many trainers who told us glowing stories about their work and trainees, and shared their successes and frustrations. We are very thankful to everyone who chose to take part in the contest, and since many of you deserve to win, our judges had a rather hard time choosing the very best.

Even though initially we intended to select just one winner, in the end the judges decided to award two best Tvoy Kurs trainers:

I. Anastasia Ershova, Togliatti State University
II. Yulia Zaitseva, Krasnoyark Regional Academic library
