Oct. 28, 2021

Regional stages of the All-Russian Professional Contest “Welcome Cup” – a project of the Presidential platform “Russia is a country of opportunities”- are over. Anastasia Smirnova represented our University with the project “"Development of excursion routes of religious tourism for people with disabilities in the Penza Region “Surskie Svyatila”. The project provides for the development of excursions for people with disabilities in audio and video format.

But semi-final programme comprised not only the project presentation. “During the contest we participated in such educational and entertaining activities as “Selfie-Quest, Road Show, Workshops, practicums, Masters Cup on Russian Folk Games, - Anastasia shares her information with the group of PenzGTU Tourist Information Centre. – The most important thing was that we were learning to communicate, build relationships, form new traditions and standards of service; after all, the prestige of professions in tourism and hospitality often depends on this."

As a result, 150 participants who will compete for grants for the implementation of projects in special nominations from the contest partners passed to the final. The contest final winners will get up to 1,5 million rubles grants, the opportunity to consult with mentors and the chance to get an internship in large companies.

Ivan Pchelnikov(PNZGU) and Kristina Gromova(PGUAS) are representing the region at the prestigious contest together with Anastasia.

The final is in November this year.

We sincerely wish Anastasia to win!
