Foreign Language Song Contest22-05-2018
On May 21 the Gwint club hosted the participants of the 4th Foreign Language Song Contest organized by our Foreign Language Centre. This year, apart from Polish students, we could also listen to contestants from Ukraine and Ghana. The event was graced by the presence of Professor Marta Kosior-Kazberuk. The Jury, chaired by Wioletta Omelianiuk, assessed both artistic values and linguistic correctness of the performed songs. The most valuable prizes for the winners were funded by Jagiellonia. Helios Cinema funded cinema tickets. Additional awards were granted by the organizers and the International Short Film Festival Żubroffka.
