The organizer of the contest was traditionally the Center “Nasledie” after Pitirim Sorokin. Within the framework of the stated theme: “Komi region in the fate and works of Pitirim Sorokin”, the participants of the contest for several months studied the influence of the small homeland on the life and work of our countryman.



The contest had 16 schoolchildren and students from 13 educational institutions, a total 16 works were provided. Children from all over the republic studied what childhood of P. Sorokin was, what memories he kept about the Komi people, what research he did. The works from the Syktyvkar, Ukhta, Vorkuta, Sosnogorsk, Mikun, Ust-Vymsky and Priluzsky districts were submitted to the contest.
