Chukotka project received a grant for 1 million rubles
The Chukotka project “Reindeer herding biathlon” won a presidential grant. These are competitions that include racing on reindeer teams, running on tundra skis, shooting from pneumatics and throwing the Chukchi lasso (chaat).
According to the press service of the regional government, the goal of the project is to attract the younger generation to the culture of their ancestors, motivating it to preserve traditions. An entrepreneur from Pevek received a grant in the amount of more than one million rubles for these purposes. The money will go to buy special equipment, sports equipment and shoot a documentary.
Following the results of two 2019 contests of the year, support from the Presidential Grants Fund was received by the 3 772 project. “Reindeer herding biathlon” was the only project of the competition from six submitted by the Chukotka Autonomous Region.
