In 2021, in Ukraine we widely celebrated the 150th anniversary of the birth of Lesia Ukrainka and Vasyl Stefanyk and the 165th anniversary of the birth of Ivan Franko. In order to represent the work of prominent Ukrainians, the Central City Library named after M.L. Kropyvnytskyi joined the all-Ukrainian commemoration of Ivan Franko, Lesia Ukrainka and Vasyl Stefanyk. At the end of February, the video reading contest "The Greatness of the Word of Famous Ukrainians" started. By creating video miniatures the contestants conveyed their original vision and feeling of the works by Ukrainian classics.
Reception of competition works lasted during September. The organizers posted them on the official website of the library, on the pages of social networks under the hashtags #величСлова, #читайукраїнське #ЛесяУкраїнка, #ВасильСтефаник #ІванФранко.
By online voting viewers and jury members evaluated the submitted video in October.
A total of 37 works were submitted in seven nominations. And today, on the Day of Ukrainian Literature and Language, we congratulate the winners!!!
