The Russian society «Knowledge» summed up the results of the full-time semi-finals of the competitions «League of Lecturers» and «School League of Lecturers», which were held in 10 cities of Russia from March 13 to April 13. Among the finalists are 100 adults and 50 young participants of the project from 59 regions, who will now have to give lectures to an audience at leading Moscow universities. From Sevastopol, two young lecturers and one adult participant went to the final.
Semi-final readings were held in Moscow, Tula, Sochi, Krasnoyarsk, St. Petersburg, Vladivostok, Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Lugansk and Stavropol. 400 adults and 100 young participants from 80 regions read their lectures for everyone. In total, all lectures of the stage formed almost 11,510 minutes of educational content. The contestants with the most votes from the audience advanced to the finals. After all, the results of the semi-finals depended entirely on the audience’s assessments. At this stage, the lecturers’ performances were evaluated by the audience according to five criteria: knowledge of the subject, work with the audience, general culture of the lecturer, relevance of the topic and creativity of the presentation.
From Sevastopol to the final came out: students of school No. 54 Anna Vorontsova And Egor Enkinas well as a representative of the «League of Lecturers» and mentor of entrepreneurs Irene Andrutskaya.
In most cities, the semi-finals were held for more than one day — it was necessary to have time to hear what all the participants had prepared. The Moscow semi-final was the longest: 106 adult lecturers spoke here during the week, and then 31 participants of the “School League” devoted two more days to competitions.
Thanks to the organizers for the clarity! Everything was comfortable for the contestants, for the listeners, the host was just brilliant! He asked great questions, and the topics were very different. I really liked the guys in the audience, how attentive they were and asked questions, they definitely inspired me. In the final, I think I will devote my lecture to either the development of creative thinking, or digital chips for all occasions— a Muscovite, candidate of pedagogical sciences shared her impressions Svetlana Antonova.
Another 42 participants of the «League of Lecturers» from the Central Federal District competed in Tula.
The semi-final in Tula was organized at the highest level. I am a finalist of the second season and went to the third season because it is a real spirit of competition and fair competition, which allows me to improve myself as a lecturer very quickly. On a separate note, I want to note that the educational program for the finalists in the second season, in one day, really turned my idea of the art of performing. Acquaintance with Nina Vitalievna Zvereva became a turning point in my development, and for this, of course, we should thank the League of Lecturers! — the finalist from Moscow spoke warmly about the organization of the competition Irina Le-Deygen.

In the upcoming finals, several participants who have already passed the previous seasons of the League of Lecturers will perform at once.
After the first year of participation, I decided to do it for the second time in order to conquer myself and develop my own unique style. My students and my mentors noticed that after I began to participate in the projects of the Knowledge Society, my style of public speaking changed for the better and I became closer to my students. As an expert in the field of law, I myself am often on the jury of many competitions, but here I have risen to the same level with the contestants in order to work on myself and improve. In the final I will present, of course, topics from the field of jurisprudence and law. I will try to attract the attention of the audience, give them vivid emotions and make the topic as understandable as possible., — said the finalist from Saratov Tatyana Volkova – PhD in Law, Associate Professor of the Department of Land and Environmental Law of the State Law and Law Academy, judge, member of the Saratov branch of the Association of Lawyers of Russia.

A tenth grader spoke about her participation in the project Victoria Zhukova from the city of Alchevsk, Luhansk People’s Republic. “The contribution of the Luhansk region to the greatness of the Victory of the Russian state” is a topic that the girl revealed at the competition.
Recently, my native republic became part of the Russian Federation, and I thought it would be right to talk about the contribution of our region to the history of Russia. The most exciting thing for me was to choose such material that would be interesting to the audience. After all, you always need to be able to interest a person, clearly convey informationVictoria shared. — Before the competition, I was very worried, but literally after a couple of minutes of the performance, I realized that there was nothing to be afraid of, that they had heard and listened to me, everyone was interested in the information that I was giving. It was very nice to interact with the audience, and everything turned out the way I planned..

Russian society «Knowledge» originates from a Soviet public organization founded in 1947 on the initiative of representatives of the Soviet intelligentsia as the All-Union Society for the Dissemination of Political and Scientific Knowledge (since 1963 — the All-Union Society «Knowledge», since 1991 — the Society «Knowledge of Russia»). Members of the Society were engaged in the popularization of science, lectured on the achievements of the Soviet economy and industry. In 2016, “Knowledge of Russia” was transformed into the All-Russian Public and State Educational Organization “Russian Society “Knowledge”. On April 21, 2021, in the Address of the President of the Russian Federation to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin announced the need to restart the Russian Knowledge Society on a modern digital platform.
