117 participants of National dictation were invited to take part in the final, which was held in Martynas Mažvydas national library.

Vilniaus prekybos paramos fondas „Dabar“ is the main sponsor of this contest.

“The fact that the National Dictation is organised for the eleventh time and that people look forward to it demonstrates that people appreciate their language and understand that someone who speaks fluently and correctly is more likely to be heard. The Dictation allows remembering writing skills and, more importantly, it encourages young people to learn them. In addition, the Dictation reminds everyone that we must cherish our unique language together,” states Elena Aleknavičienė, the CEO of “Vilniaus prekybos paramos fondas DABAR”.
