Ministry for youth policy, sports and tourism RB has finished acceptance of documents from applicants for State youth awards in science and technology.

We remind that they were instituted by the resolution of Cabinet of Ministers RB in 2002 for the purpose of development of republican scientific potential and encouragement of the most talented young scientists.

According to Ministry for youth policy, sports and tourism RB, 12 scientists and 6 teams became prize-winners for the period of six years. It is noticeable that interest for the award is growing year after year. For instance, last year there were 45 scientific papers submitted. In 2009, 49 papers are already presented for nomination, 17 of them belong to the humanities, 15 papers are devoted to engineering sciences and the rest 17 — to natural sciences. Recently there have been applicants not only from Ufa, but also from Oktyabrsky, Sibai, Birsk and other towns and regions of republic.

In the near future, there is going to be the final meeting of the committee, participants of which are scientists, public figures, heads of Ministries and Agencies, presidents of leading higher educational institutions of Bashkortostan.
