Dear participants of “The Leadership” project!

As you probably remember, the first subpart is finishing very soon. We hope to find your results in the blogs. Also, don’t forget about Christmas gifts! It’s time to make and send them to your friends from other patrols!

We have organized a lottery, which helped us to decide to what patrol every patrol is sending a Christmas present.

So please send your mail addresses to vsegdakotov[at] as soon as possible and we will give this information to your partner.

How to write a postal address:

address line 1: the name of the patrol and oа its formal leader; address line 2: street address; address line 3: any address specifics (optional) (i.e. Suite number 100 or Second Floor, etc.); address line 4: city and zip/postal index; address line 5: country name Here’re the results of the lottery: Tallin1 – Perm Tallin2 – Kaliningrad Jõhvi – Petrozavodsk Vilnius – St-Petersburg ORUR Visaginas – St-Petersburg NORS

Good luck!
