Kazakhstan’s Shakhmardan Yessenov Foundation wrapped up the competition for the best idea for a new educational program. What are these winner ideas?
Ilzira Aldagarova who coordinated the project, shares with us the results of the contest:
— Following our mission, our goal is to implement programs that are new, effective and relevant for Kazakhstan. The competition was announced for this very purpose. We decided not to award a third place. The second-place winner is the idea of installing oil and gas software in the universities of Kazakhstan. The idea is authored by Yersaiyn Ospanov. And the first-place winner of the competition is Yerzhan Sapenov from Astana. During our annual meeting with the foundation’s students on March 18, he was in Qatar, so the prize was handed to another representative of the group, Ardak Bizhaksynova, who arrived to Almaty for the meeting. The winners received a three-volume atlas “From the Altai to the Caspian Sea”. The encyclopedic edition is the result of years of hard work of scientists, historians, archaeologists, geologists, geographers and cartographers of Kazakhstan. The publication contains numerous data, documented facts about the monuments and sights, history, geography and culture of our country, and there are more than 3,000 illustrations on atlas’ pages. Yerzhan Sapenov’s group proposed to conduct courses of IT education for the children at orphanages. We believe the idea is relevant, but first we must study and explore it in order to understand how best it can be implemented, whether or not children’s homes are willing to collaborate in the implementation process and whether the children themselves are interested in such trainings. Upon the results of our finding, the Foundation will make the decision to invest or not in this project. We congratulate Yersaiyn Ospanov and Yerzhan Sapenov’s groups with the victory and thank all the participants of the competition.
