We have won PR competition

Grand Prix

Our 2015 Minecraft project has just won a prize for the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship (our administrative district)! In the PR competition “Kryształy PR-u” for units of local government, the project earned Grand Prix for “Best Promotion of EU Funds”.

Last year, we launched a Minecraft-based PR / educational project for the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship (administrative district). It was funded by the Marshall Office, organised by the Foundation for Kazimierz Wielki University (NGO), and executed primarily by UKW students and staff (dr Michał Mochocki and mgr Mikołaj Sobociński as supervisors of student internships, a team of eight gamedecs led by Adrianna Kuliś as ‘boots on the ground’). What we did was to build a Minecraft map of the Voivodeship together with a number of buildings and monuments selected by the Marshall Office as the most interesting tourist attractions.

During the summer 2015, we had hundreds of visitors attending events organised by the gamedecs on the map: parkour, archery contests, medieval battle reenactments etc.

We have had school groups on e-lessons online, and Adrianna visiting schools in real life to demonstrate Minecraft to teachers and learners. We also wrote (in Polish) a free PDF booklet for teachers interested in the use of Minecraft in schools.

We had more buildings constructed on our map by the community, including a voivodeship-wide competition (May 2016) for the best reconstructions of selected existing buildings.

Now it’s the Grand Prix.
