10. ročník Duchnovičovho Prešova

So I still have tons more to share from Serbia, but I'm going to interrupt that for a bit to post some stuff from something that happened today which is arguably even more important: the 10. ročník Duchnovičovho Prešova.  This is a contest for elementary school children in Slovakia who study the Rusyn language and who, at the end of the school year, meet for this recitation contest in the Rusyn language.
I have over an hour of video of school kids declaiming and acting in Rusyn, but I'll have to post it using Vimeo because it's too long for YouTube.  One of those things for when I get around to it...  but it's so important in terms of the continuing, critical discussion regardling living language.
