Students from the High School “28th of June” East Sarajevo (RS), and students of the Gymnasium Breza (Federation), and their professors welcomed back to Sarajevo.
Tuesday 10th August, EUFOR’s Colonel Svetlin Antonov met secondary school students returning to Sarajevo airport from Turkey. Five students from the High School “28th of June” East Sarajevo (RS), three students of the Gymnasium Breza (Federation), and their professors enjoyed a fascinating holiday as part of their prize for competing in the EUFOR 2010 Schools’ Competition. Professors Mrs. Aida Musanovic and Mrs. Mihajlovic MIlanka expressed their gratitude to EUFOR and the Turkish Embassy for sponsoring the prize.

Wednesday 11th August, Wolfburg’s Edin Dzeko, in cooperation with UNICEF, publicly endorsed the EUFOR CUP 2010. Prior to flying out from Sarajevo airport he praised EUFOR’s youth initiatives and will be returning in September to encourage children from all corners of BiH to participate.

Last year’s EUFOR Football competition was a resounding success with 48 schools participating. The event was supported by major European sporting organizations with the winning teams hosted by The Premier League, FC Wolfsburg and FC Utrecht. In many towns across Bosnia and Herzegovina the children soon became minor celebrities.
As a result of last year’s interest EUFOR plans to hold regional qualifying days in September with the finals taking place in Sarajevo. Details of the event will be published on the web www.euforbih.org in early September. Additionally, EUFOR Liaison and Observation Teams will encourage applications from schools in their local areas. To view a report on last year’s event please visit You Tube and search for EUFOR CUP 2009.
