The 6th SAMARITAN Contest took place in Kraków and Stará Ľubovňa from 18-21 August 2016.
The 2016 Contest is the first one to be organised in a joint cross-border effort by ASSR from Slovakia and SFOP from Poland. The tasks and challenges of the Contest will took place mainly on the Slovak side of the border, while part of the framework programme was set in Poland.
Eleven SAM.I. members from ten countries sent participants to the Contest 2016. A total of 82 youths competed in Kraków and Stará Ľubovňa, not counting youth custodians and support staff of the teams. ASSR and SFOP mobilised close to one hundred volunteers to help organise the Contest.
Just like last time, the participants competed not only in first aid, but will also completed tasks testing their dexterity and creativity.
