W. Shakespeare can be modern and stylish

Category: Information

“Our doubts are traitors, 
and make us lose the good we oft might win, 
by fearing to attempt.”

William Shakespeare

On 26th of April 2018 National Shakespeare Competition supported by deputy Oleksandr Horbunov was held in Volodymyr Vynnychenko Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University. The competition started with a minute of silence in memory of Margarita Danilko, Chairman of the ESU Ukraine, President of the International Council, who suddenly passed away.

Traditionally the participants amazed the audience with impressive performances, love to great words of Shakespeare and intense desireto get victory. 27 semi-finalists recited euphonious lines from William Shakespeare`s sonnets and the jury chose 9 reciters for the great final.

The final of the competition was emotional and interesting. Every participant tried his best to succeed. The jury announced the winners of National Shakespeare Competition 2018 and all the competitors were awarded with certificatesof participation and presents. The 3rd place was given simultaneously to 2 participants: Vadym Bilodid (Haivoron Polytechnic College, third-year student) and Anna Ohlobiak (Gymnasium of New Teaching Technologies, Kropyvnytskyi, 10th Form). The runner-up was Daria Puchnina (Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University, first-year student). As the winner of the competition Olena Dzhus was chosen (Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University, 2nd Year student).

         For Olena Dzhus this victory is not a happy occasion, it is a result of many years training and self-development, because it is her third attempt to win the mountain top, which name is National Shakespeare Competition. The winner considers this competition as a perfect possibility to overcome fear, express your emotions, show your own vision of classical sonnet and just get pleasure of socializing with talented youth.

Every year National Shakespeare Competition attracts talented reciters who demonstrate that the sonnets of great English classic can be modern, stylish and interesting.
