The third edition of “School of Radioeaters”: Korea and Balkan folklore


The largest radio talents, hidden in students of Polish schools in Lithuania, were awarded by the Radio “Znad Wilii” (Eng. “From the Neris River”). The finalists of this edition were awarded on Saturday (September 22).

‘We are happy that the participants of this contest weren’t forced to take part in it because their teacher of Polish language told them to do so. During the contest the kids really changed. From the first decision that, yes, I can prepare a report, through text and interview editing, up to broadcasting. It is a great feeling to watch sparkling eyes of children, eager to know, to learn something new, something unknown’, said the organizer of the contest, Julita Krasińska.

The third edition was held under the theme “Holidays of Radioeaters”. Works presented in the contest should meet the formal requirements: time – no longer than 10 minutes, linguistic correctness, compliance with the subject, good sound quality. All reports submitted to the competition were judged by a group of independent experts, as well as Internet users.

‘I dance in the “Wilia” (Eng. “Neris”) team. We went with the team to Bulgaria and there I decided to compare three folklores: Vilnius, Polish and Balkan ones. We participated in a festival, which gave me a chance to commune with young people fascinated with folklore of different nations’, said Łukasz Kamiński from Adam Mickiewicz’s School, the winner of the Grand Prix of the contest.

‘In my work I presented the state of Korea. I wanted to show culture, music and customs of this distant country. The contest was a challenge for me. I’d like to build mathematics or economics career in future. I’m very happy that I won, it’s a good trigger for me to achieve next aims of mine’, says Ewa Dragunaitė from Adam Mickiewicz’s School, the winner of the contest.

A nice surprise at the occasion of awarding the winners was a performance by a famous Polish cabaret, “Paranienormalni”
