  The annual Melikhov elocution competitions are designed to identify and encourage elocutionists, to revive and support the interest of young professionals in the art of elocution. The genre of the spoken word is our national treasure, an exclusively Russian cultural phenomenon.

Young actors and senior students of the leading theatre universities of the country and abroad will compete in such a difficult type of performance skills as "art word". Each competition has its own theme. Thus, in addition to Chekhov's stories, the contest stage will feature works by other classics of Russian literature. The theme of the coming year is "Chekhov and Pushkin".
