For the second time Vilniaus Prekybos Support Fund Dabar and Pilietinės minties Institutas (Civil Thought Institute) invite people to participate in the National Dictation competition.
“Taking part in the competition has become tradition for the employees of Vilniaus Prekyba grupė companies. All our employees have been invited to participate in the 12th National Dictation competition. Writing dictation is a good opportunity to remember our native tongue and have our knowledge and competence tested in a 45-minute session. We should cherish and protect our history and our uniqueness. Let’s make it a special day and encourage our friends, acquaintances and colleagues to join in too,” says Rytis Jezepčikas, CEO of Vilniaus Prekybos Paramos Fund Dabar.
The texts of the dictation are prepared in collaboration with the State Commission of the Lithuanian Language – a continuing partner of the project.
The participants will compete for the title of the best writing competitor in the following categories – the best writing pupil, the best writing adult and the best writing foreign Lithuanian. The text of the dictation will be announced on March 11 at www.diktantas.lt and www.vlkk.lt (with explanations on spelling and punctuation).
Over 30 thousand people took part in the National Dictation last year.
ATTENTION! Lithuanian communities abroad can write the dictation on March 9-10, at the time that is convenient for them, and not necessarily during the live broadcast. If requested, we can send the record of the broadcast. The dictations can be sent back to the organisers through the Embassies of the Republic of Lithuania. The usual terms and conditions shall apply to all participants.
