11.05.2017

PRESS RELEASE

The Citizen’s Day Quiz has been encouraging school students in Estonia to really think about what it means to be an Estonian citizen and what makes our country special for years.

- What is Estonia’s global ranking in terms of how many countries its passport holders can visit without a visa?
- How many people pass through the border point in Narva each year?
- For what purpose was the Cyber Unit of the Defence League established?

These are just some examples of the kinds of questions to which those taking part in the quiz in previous years have had to find the answers.

The Integration Foundation has been organising the Citizen’s Day Quiz since 2003. To date, almost 84,000 youngsters have completed the quizzes. A total of 905 questions have been set over the years, with none of them being repeated.

This year there will be a separate quiz for students in Grades 7-9

The following quizzes will be held from 20-30 November 2017:
1) Citizen’s Day Quiz for students in Grades 5 & 6 at general education schools (all questions in both Estonian and Russian; 30 questions in total; 60 minutes to complete the quiz)
2) Citizen’s Day Quiz for students in Grades 7-9 at general education schools (questions in Estonian; 50 questions in total; 60 minutes to complete the quiz)
