Over the course of the last few years Pilna doma (Full Thought) has become one of the most popular media literacy projects in Latvia. The tip of the Pilna doma iceberg is a journalism contest for high-school students from all regions of Latvia, but beneath this visible part of the project lies diligent work with teachers and education officials to include media literacy and critical thinking in school curriculums, while leading Latvian journalists provide training and mentoring for students. Each year, the project ends with a classy award ceremony at the National Library of Latvia.
