The Lenin Prize for the Benefit of Children.

22.04.2020

60 years ago, on April 22, 1960, the newspaper “Pravda” published the resolution of the Committee on Lenin Prizes in the field of literature and art under the Council of Ministers of the USSR on awarding the Lenin Prize to Mikhail Sholokhov for the novel “Virgin Soil Upturned”: “The Lenin Prize Committee in the field of literature and art have decided to award the Lenin Prizes for the most outstanding achievements in the field of literature, journalism and art”. “... to Mikhail Sholokhov - for the novel “Virgin Soil Upturned”, the first and second books”.

The Lenin Prize was considered one of the highest forms of encouraging citizens for the greatest achievements in the field of science, technology, literature, art and architecture.

At the rally, which was held in the Vyoshensky District House of Culture, fellow countrymen warmly congratulated the writer on a high award.

The first teacher of Mikhail Sholokhov, Timofei Mrykhin, turning to the writer, said excitedly: “Dear Mikhail Alexandrovich! Your outstanding books are loved and appreciated by workers all over the world. Your works, full of folk wisdom, are taught to live and fight, to overcome any hardships, to build a new, just world. Thank you for your hard work”.

The Lenin Prize for "Virgin Soil Upturned" was 75,000 rubles.

Mikhail Sholokhov, who at that time for many years was the deputy of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, did a lot for the improvement of his native land. He knew that in the stanitsa Karginskaya there was an acute problem with the school building: education was carried out in four small buildings that were not specifically designed for the educational process.

On July 7, 1960, Sholokhov telegraphed his request to the Lenin Prize Award Committee: “... to transfer the prize awarded to me at the disposal of the Karginsky Village Council, Bazkovsky District, Rostov Region, for the construction of a new school building...”. The party leadership decided to build a school at the request of the writer.

A new school was opened in January 1964, its construction cost 750,000 rubles.

Having received acknowledgements from the Kargins after the construction of the school was completed, Mikhail Sholokhov answered with a joke: "I gave only a button, and the Soviet government sewed a suit for it".

The school was built according to the best project of that time: large, bright classes, specialized and equipped according to all the rules classrooms, an assembly hall and a gym with all the necessary attributes, long corridors. Two beautiful front doors to the school seemed to be something special.

In 2003, the school was named after the Nobel laureate Mikhail Sholokhov.
