From the Carpatho-Rusyn Society:
Calling C-RS Rusyn Youth to represent us at the World Forum of Rusyn Youth
For the first time since at least the 1940s, Rusyn Youth from around the world will gather together to begin to develop their skills to become the leaders of tomorrow�s Rusyn community. The first-ever World Congress of Rusyn Youth will be held June 8 in Presov, Slovakia. And we have been invited to send 8 delegates to this landmark event! Would you like to be one of them? If so, here�s what you need to know:
1. The event will be held Sunday, June 8 and conclude with a celebration of Rusyn culture that evening. Attendees to the Forum will meet at that event with the adults who are there attending the Rusyn World Congress, the meeting of Rusyn leaders from throughout the world.
2. C-RS would like to help send you there. How can you tell us you�re interested ingoing?
A. if you are between the ages of 15-17, write no more than two pages on why you should be selected to attend this event.
B. If you are between the ages of 18-30, simply tell us in about 1 page why you are interested in Rusyn culture and why you think it would benefit you and the American Rusyn community for you to attend.
