"Demokracja to dialog bez barier"

Szymon Stec’s photo, “Democracy is dialogue without barriers,” was selected as the winner of the “Democracy is” photo contest run by the U.S. Embassy and the Center for Citizenship Education.

Szymon was able to join us at the Forum and receive his prize — a Canon Digital Rebel 12.2 megapixel SLR camera — from Alicja Pacewicz.
