"For the common good" was the topic of the 2015/2016 Slovenian History Competition. When the wave of refugees and migrants passed through Slovenia in 2015, local firefighters were the first to help those people in need. That's when Tinkara decided to find out more about the role and significance of firefighters in the past and present.

Take a look at what Tinkara said about her competition entry.
