UrFU names Xenia Silantieva one of "Students of Year"

Ural Federal University recently named Xenia Silantieva one of its "Students of the Year" on Tuesday, Jan. 28, also known as Russian Students Day.

The fifth-year student in the Institute of Materials Science and Metallurgy was recognized for her leadership in the category of "professional skills."

Silantieva was recognized among several other medalists. She was awarded with an Apple tablet computer. Five other students were also honored, as was the student dance group "Fast and Furious."

The "Student of the Year" awards were established in 2010 by Sverdlovsk Associates of University Students, a trade union organization.

The Ministry of Physical Culture, Sport and Youth Policy of the Federation of Trade Unions organizes the regional competition, which rewards students for achievements in the areas of academic excellence, sports, artistic and scientific activities and social life.
