Specialized boarding school for blinded children in Tashkent was a next-in-turn host for Spelling Competition. 21 disabled participants competed to prove their excellence on spelling.
Started with a talent show of young creative ones, virtuously playing the piano and chanting with an uncharacteristic-to-kids voice, the event launched the spelling battle with greeting speeches by teachers, mentors and members of the judge panel, led by Mark Crossey, British Council Uzbekistan director and consisted of specialists of UzSWLU English Language Faculty 3.
Every participant took turn to spell given words in English. Complexity level of words gradually grew.
Some competitors found the game a little challenging: having a relaxed spelling speed, while for some spelling words appeared to be a piece of cake.
Anyway, every one of participants reached the love of the gathered, as both adults and peers supported the spellers.
With applause and encouragements, mistaken competitors left the game and continued their participation as observers.
Coming to the end, the strongest five stated on the stage. Then three of battlers went on the climax. The finale of the contest with a long-lasting duel with Madina and Kamola came to its end with “sometimes” incorrectly spelled by Kamola.
All partakers received the certificates, the best keepsakes reminding this great event, according to them. Finalists got their deserved prizes from sponsors and organizers of the event.
As the awarding ceremony ended, the full house enjoyed the concert program. Young competitors Samir and Abdulvosit were asked to play an encore. Barbie & Ken’s fiery song put a good start to an amazing festivity.
Pop masters Dilfuza Rahimova, Ulugbek Halikov, whose songs got people dancing and comedian Bahodir Mahmudov made a good contribution to the event.
The list of partners, sponsors of the event, initiated by the UzSWLU English Language Faculty 3 and Young Researchers volunteer group, included the Ministry of Higher and Secondary Specialized Education, British Council, the Association of Blinded People of Uzbekistan and Uzbeknavo Variety Arts Association.
