The Trubodetal Manufacturing Facility (AO Trubodetal, Chelyabinsk, a United Metallurgical Company (AO OMK, Moscow) Subsidiary) is to hold a contest of improvement projects called “Novosineglazovsky: My Home Town”. In 2017, the third such contest will be held in honor of the 85th anniversary of the Township of Novosineglazovsky and the 25th anniversary of OMK.
The competition includes four categories. The category “We are Proud of Novosineglazovsky, Our Hometown” is open to projects designed to improve the township’s public places (urban parks, recreational facilities, sports grounds); the category “Novosineglazovsky, Our Hometown, is a Nice Place to Live” is open to projects to improve courtyards and areas around buildings. Projects winning the two categories will receive funding from the manufacturing facility, and the implementation will include local residents.
The category “Novosineglazovsky, Our Hometown, is Beautiful” considers courtyard and building grounds projects that have already been completed (flower beds, shrub and tree plantings, installation of landscaping structures, elements of décor made by the residents themselves) while winners will be given prizes. And the category “We Keep Novosineglazovsky, Our Home, Clean” is all about the Year of the Environment in Russia, and is open to contestants with projects designed to protect the environment (environmental events, mass area cleaning and landscaping). The category rewards its winners with materials for their events.
“The facility has been holding these contests in various formats for several years now. We understand that we need to maintain the environment we live and work in. We would like all Novosineglazovsky residents to understand this deep in their hearts, especially given that we have a lot of active and caring residents in this town”, noted Trubodetal Managing Director Dmitri Markov.
