Attention young people, students! We are sponsoring an essay contest!

For the greater Hungarian community, 2020 is the year of National Unity or National Cohesiveness. This theme was announced by the Hungarian government given that it is the 100th anniversary of the Treaty of Trianon. The theme focuses on what unites all those who affirm their Hungarian identity.

Hungarians have searched for positive expressions of their national identity this year, and we in the Diaspora have a lot to contribute to this identity. Being Hungarian "together" with other Hungarians worldwide is something that many young people experience if they are of Hungarian descent. We invite young people to share their thoughts on this theme by submitting an essay.

We will award cash prizes, and essays may be written in English or Hungarian. We plan to invite the young authors of the best essays to read their essays on our December 12th virtual Zoom program. Whether you are in middle school or high school, we welcome your thoughts on the theme of being part of the Hungarian nation and how your Hungarian identity can unite you with other young Hungarians worldwide.

November's Trianon Program will feature contemporary personal stories

The Museum announces Part III of our program series on the Treaty Of Trianon 

Join us on Saturday, November 14 at 2 pm.

"Reverberations a century later." 

This presentation will feature personal narratives of four young adults who live in minority status in four countries in the detached regions surrounding Hungary.  They will describe in very personal ways how they experienced the aftermath of the Treaty of Trianon.  They will share with the audience the critical milestones and key features of their environment that enabled them to retain their Hungarian identities.

This panel presentation examines how the current generation of young people, whose families have lived in minority status for generations, perceive the Treaty that has had such an impact on their lives.

Join us for this virtual program!

  1. St. Andrea Winery "Boldogságos" Egri Csillag Grand Superior, 2018; Boldogságos Vineyards, Egerszólát, Hungary
    White: blend of four white grapes, rich, crisp acidity, full-bodied

With the „Boldogságos” Egri Csillag , try rich seafood such as lobster, scallops, and shrimp.  Fried meats with buttery sauces are also great pairings with this dry wine, as well as appetizers such as traditional Hungarian „pogácsa” and „sós rudacska”.

  1. St. Andrea, Rosa Mystica, 2019; St. Andrea Winery, Eger, Hungary
    Rose: refreshing, light, sharp acidity, cranberry aromas

The recommendation is that you enjoy this rosée wine with cheese, charcuterie, perhaps a grilled cheese sandwich, or pizza and quiche; in other words, lighter fare.
