Lana Leuchuk is Blekinge’s candidate for Årets Nybyggare 2016. She takes over the award from the governor of Blekinge County, Berit Andnor Bylund. Årets Nybyggare in Blekinge County is the regional version of the award that King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden handles at the national level every year. The award is instituted by the International Corporate Association in Sweden, IFS, to encourage active people who immigrated to Sweden and started a business with limited resources and, through hard and purposeful work, have achieved success in the industry.
Artworks by Lana were exhibited in the residence in Karlskrona.
