The SAE Central and South America Region decided to carry out two competitions, addressed to children and adolescents of Greek origin, aged between 10 to 18 years old. The competitions aim to attract the interest of young Greeks abroad for the “wealth” of Greek language and oral tradition. The two winners will have the chance to travel to Greece for a week accompanied by their parents.
The first competition invites all youths to record Greek proverbs, whereas the second competition invites Greeks to look for words in Hispanic or Portuguese language with Greek roots, seeking the help of their close family members, relatives and friends.
SAE Central and South America Region attributes great importance to youth and the preservation and dissemination of the Greek culture and pays great attention to this competition.
