The jury included a co-founder of the Yasnaya Polyana Agreement movement Natalia Pilius; the director of the Yasnaya Polyana museum, Ekaterina Tolstaya; the museum’s chief designer, Alexander Kartashov; and the first deputy director of the Tula Local History and Art Museum, Marina Kuzina.

The contest judged the best-developed lesson about the writer’s life and works.

The winners of the children‘s drawings contest will be awarded prizes at the opening of the exhibition at the Yasnaya Polyana Gallery.
