🎤 On the occasion of November 1st – the Day of National Enlighteners, the “St. St. Cyril and Methodius 1985” Community Centre announces a poetry recitation competition about or dedicated to national enlighteners. The competition aims to encourage and establish children’s interest in the art of recitation and to popularize Bulgarian enlighteners, writers, and revolutionaries.

✅ Participants are aged 4 to 10 years. Each participant sends a video clip with a recitation of a poem up to 5 minutes that corresponds to the theme. Only individual performers are allowed for judging. The video clip should be recorded in a good acoustic environment – without external sounds or noises, sufficient lighting, good resolution, and a horizontal view. Performances are evaluated based on expressiveness, diction, and overall acting presence.

✅ Participants should send their video and information (participant’s name and surname, age, kindergarten or educational institution, contact phone, email, author and title of the poem) to the email chitalishtekm@gmail.com by October 22, 2023.

✅ A three-member jury consisting of Alex and Gergana Anmahyan – professional actors from the State Puppet Theatre – Burgas, and Dian Dimitrov – chairman of the “St. St. Cyril and Methodius 1985” Community Centre, will determine the winners in two categories: 4 to 6 years old and 7 to 10 years old. The winners will be announced on November 1, 2023.
