Participation in the Poetry Recital Contest can be a very rewarding experience for local students who love poetry and learn Russian.   Children and adults recite in Russian a poem of their choice.  Both "Native Russian speakers" and "Non-native Russian speakers” are welcome to participate. "Native speakers" are Contestants who use Russian language at home. "Non-native speakers" refers to Contestants whose home language is other than Russian.  The First Prize of $25 will be awarded in both divisions and each of three age groups.  

Three age levels:
       ages 3-6,
       7-12,
       13 and up 
Two divisions:
       Native Russian Speakers 
       Non-Native Russian Speakers
