Laurus Nobilis Award

 About the award:
• it was founded in 1995 with the aim of stimulating written work for pupils of higher grades of elementary school and secondary school pupils in the Croatian and Italian language
• each year a competition is held for the original work of fiction, for example: short story, humoresque, causerie, prose poem, travelogue, biographical note, essay and other.
• the right to participate belongs to the pupils of higher grades of elementary school and secondary school pupils from the Poreč area
• the text must be original and not yet published, it must not exceed four cards, and in order to achieve higher objectivity and impartiality, the works that are evaluated have a password, or a code, and the topic is free
• the most successful works are printed in the book Pozica – The Anthology of pupils' works from Poreč, Zabok and Crikvenica
• beside this stimulus for every person with literary affinities – to have his/her work printed, the awarded pupils have the right to a valuable award (so far they were: golden brooch, wrist watch, digital photo frame...) and a three-day excursion to award-winning ceremony Ksaver Šandor Gjalski in Zabok.
