The 5th Samaritan Contest will take place in Venice

The 5th SAMARITAN Contest will take place from August 7 to August 10, 2014 in Adria and Venice, Italy. This year’s contest coincides with the run-up to the International Day of Youth! The Samaritan organisations have already registered their teams and ANPAS is currently waiting for the final confirmation of guests to finalise all local arrangements.

Just like at the past contests, there will be a theoretical test on first aid, a city game (the practical part of the contest which will take place in Venice), a creative part and a final evening event.
