"Turkey is a friend of your country"

Joy and thanksgiving prevailed as tens of thousands of people gathered in İstanbul’s grand stadium on Thursday to live experience outstanding performances of students in the 10th Turkish Olympiads.
The venue for the grand finale on Thursday was Türk Telekom Arena -- Galatasaray's new multi-billion-dollar, 52,000-capacity football stadium in İstanbul's Seyrantepe neighborhood. Thousands, arriving in the area in the hope to enter the stadium, left outside and had to watch the magnificient closing ceremony from giant screens set up outside of the stadium.

A group of 290 international performers put on a show while a 16-minute visual festival was presented to the audience with light and projection elements, depicting the world map to honor teachers emigrated to countries across the globe.

The students wore 1,000 specially-made costumes in the closing ceremony.

Animations and images was projected onto a giant screen set on the pitch. An orchestra composed of 50 musicians provided music for the night. Four giant models representing the four different continents from which the students came placed in the stadium.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, his spouse Emine Erdoğan, Customs and Trade Minister Hayati Yazıcı, İstanbul Governor Hüseyin Avni Mutlu, İstanbul Mayor Kadir Topbaş participated in the closing ceremony.

The organizers from the International Turkish Education Association (TÜRKÇEDER) delivered Turkish Olympiads’ “Special Award” to Erdoğan for his “support for efforts to promote Turkish language.”

Erdoğan, in a speech following the award, hailed the 10th Turkish Olympiads as an effective way to promote Turkish language and culture, expressing his gratitude to devoted teachers working in Turkish schools in more than 140 countries all over the world.

“Turkey is a friend, brother of your country,” Erdoğan told the foreign students in the stadium filled with over 50,000 spectators. The prime minister spoke in length about the clout of Turkish language in the past centuries and saluted over 1,500 students who came to İstanbul to participate in the contest.

Erdoğan, who also was the keynote speaker in a few previous Turkish Olympiads’ closing ceremonies, thanked Turkish Islamic scholar
Fethullah Gülen, without directly mentioning his name, and implied that he return to Turkey as soon as possible from the US, where he is staying for nearly 13 years.

“We want this yearning to end,” he said, receiving a lengthy standing ovation from the crowd, in an open invitation to
Gülen to return to his hometown Turkey.

Erdoğan said those teachers who are working in Turkish schools abroad deserve plaudits and every kind of gratitude and thanksgiving, saying that it is not possible to ignore them without appreciating.

International private Turkish schools in the US chose their finalists for the 10th Turkish Olympiads, which will take place between May 30 and June 14 in Turkey, at a national competition in Washington, D.C., on Monday.  
The International Turkish Olympiad, which is organized by the International Turkish Education Association (TÜRKÇEDER), brings together hundreds of foreign students each year from Turkish schools established throughout the world. Students from various countries compete in singing and poetry contests, entertaining audiences with their outstanding performances of popular Turkish songs and well-known Turkish poems.
The national competition in the US was sponsored by the American Turkish Friendship Association (ATFA) and the Mid-Atlantic Federation of Turkic American Associations (MAFTAA). American students competed in a wide range of categories in the competition. The Turkish ambassador in Washington, Namık Tan, who attended the event, commented during the competition that those American students who are learning Turkish and Turkish culture as international Turkish students are bridges between the American and Turkish cultures. He added that he was very happy to see that Turkish language and culture was reaching an increasing number of people each year.
Attending the competition, the US Congressman from Virginia, James Moran, started his speech by wishing everyone a happy Nevruz, a spring festival, and went on to say, “Such activities bring the American and Turkish cultures together and provide chances for Americans to understand Turkish culture much better.”
Turkish schools in Ukraine also completed their qualifying rounds in a national competition which was held at the Ukraine Operette Theatre on Monday in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev.
Georgian students competed in categories such as singing, reading poetry, folk dancing and writing compositions. A performance by the Ottoman *Janissary Band consisting of students from one of the outstanding Turkish schools in Ukraine, the Meridian International School, received great applause from the spectators at the event. The competitions ended with a song titled “A New World,” which was sung in unison by all the finalists that will attend the international competition in Turkey.
The other country that completed its qualifying rounds for the 10th International Turkish Olympiads is Senegal with a national competition on Sunday. The national competition was held in the capital, Dakar, by the Yavuz Selim Educational Institutions.
The Turkish ambassador in Dakar, Aslıgül Üğdül and former Turkish State Minister Işılay Saygın attended the competition. Speaking at the competition, Üğdül thanked
the businessmen who established Turkish schools around the world, and all teachers who are teaching the Turkish language to foreign students so tirelessly. Üğdül also said she has been proud of the Turkish schools in Senegal since she took over her post two years ago.
 * Janissary, also spelled Janizary, Turkish Yeniçeri,  (New Soldier, or Troop), member of an elite corps in the standing army of the Ottoman Empire from the late 14th century to 1826. Highly respected for their military prowess in the 15th and 16th centuries, the Janissaries became a powerful political force within the Ottoman state. The Janissary corps was originally staffed by Christian youths from the Balkan provinces who were converted to Islām on being drafted into the Ottoman service. Subject to strict rules, including celibacy, they were organized into three unequal divisions (cemaat, bölükhalkı, segban) ... (100 of 238 words)

Harmony Science Academy El Paso Student finalist in Gulen's Turkish Olympiad

Hispanic Student to Represent U.S. in Turkish Song Contest

EL PASO, Texas – Jacqueline Mata, a 14-year-old Latino girl from El Paso, has been chosen to represent the United States in the Turkish Language Olympiad to be held May 23-June 14 in Istanbul.

The teen, who was chosen last month at the Olympiad U.S. finals in Houston, will compete against 179 students from other countries in a contest where all the songs will be sung in Turkish.

But for Mata that won’t be a problem since she has been taking Turkish classes since 2009 and believes she has developed a really respectable grasp of the language.

“I’m immensely happy because I will not only represent my city but the whole country. I hope to do a good job and make my artistic mark with a foreign audience,” the singer told Efe.

Mata attends Harmony Science Academy El Paso, a charter school.

“I’ve always been particularly fascinated by Turkey, and that’s why I wanted to learn the language. Then I learned several songs and here comes this beautiful opportunity,” Jacqueline said.

The student also said that the school board has behaved like her own family and that teachers and classmates meet with her all the time to encourage her in this new facet of her future artistic career.

The organizing body of the U.S. Finals is Raindrop Turkish House, a non-profit foundation present in eight states around the country and whose mission is to teach Turkish culture in the United States.

The organization is also sponsoring Mata and will pay all the expenses of her artistic adventure.

Jacqueline was invited to Turkey last year to attend the Turkish Language Olympiad but this is the first time she will compete.

“I already know something about Istanbul, but now I want to find out more about its culture and its people so I can make a lot of friends,” she said.

Mata has her musical repertoire ready and has included such songs as “Arkadas” (Amigos), “Soyle Buldun mu” (Que Crees que Dicen, or What Do You Think They’re Saying), and “Gurbet” (Nostalgia).

She spends every afternoon practicing the lyrics, knowing full well that besides her intonation, the juries will be paying keen attention to her pronunciation.

One factor in Jacqueline’s favor is the wholehearted support of her mother, who has also learned to speak Turkish for the sole purpose of helping her daughter.

“I thought it was vital to learn the new language that my daughter speaks, so I’ll know what she’s talking about,” laughed Norma Longoria, who is doing all the necessary so she can accompany her Jaqueline to the land of the Turks. EFE
