Winners of the quiz "How much do you know about the EU?", Blagota Marković, Andrija Mujović and Petar Prelević, received awards today.
Chief Negotiator Aleksandar Drljević and Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro Aivo Orav gave them, along with three bikes, diplomas for the first three places won.
Drljević stressed that the pupils showed this way that they want to learn about the European Union and the current path of Montenegro, as well as to use their knowledge in order to improve their future position in the community of democratic states.
"We are faced with great obligations, which we are fulfilling just because of you, because you will be the beneficiaries of everything we are doing today. Young people in Montenegro already can benefit from EU programmes. We will continue in the next period to develop a dialogue with the young people and show why it is important to continue the process and what are the European values we are aiming for” Drljević said.
Orav pointed out that numerous EU initiatives are dedicated to support young people and connect young people in and outside the Union with the aim of fostering volunteerism, solidarity and mobility. He recalled the high percentage of young people in Montenegro who have a positive attitude about the EU, among which are those who know about the EU and they know a lot - winners of today's awards.
