It is not the first time Michael Joseph Kerins comes to Perm. He visits Perm every year. He comes to schools, universities, talking to the audience and telling them very fascinating tales . This year students from "Foreign languages, linguistics and translation" department of Perm Tech were his interpreters.
One more mission must be performed by Michael Joseph Kerins. He hands out awards to the winners of the translation competition, which was started 20 years ago together with the actor Nikolay Naumov famous for his role in the movie "Real dudes".
Today the competition "KerinsNaumov" is due to the charity organization S.L.A.T.E (Scottish Language Action Towards Education) and thanks to Michael Joseph Kerins friends supporting his activity in Russia.
This year there were 11 participants from Perm Tech, two of them got 2d and 3d places. Also our students got two bonus prizes for the best translation of the Kerins story and Sh.Vi story and for the aсtive participation.
