On Tuesday, April 10, 2018, a jury's assessment of the Slovak calendars in 2018 became the most beautiful or the most original in the State Science Library in Banská Bystrica. The winning calendars also show that fantasy is not the limit. The original ideas screamed from each rack in the banquet of the Banská Bystrica state library. They presented a wide range of focus, from cultural sights and art, through natural beauties, to pictures that capture everyday life. The title of the most beautiful calendar of Slovakia 2018 was a total of 46 table and wall calendars this year. "It is obvious that the idea of creating calendars is old as humanity itself. People always needed and needed a quick orientation in time, months, and days. Therefore, it is more than delightful that in 1992 a new Slovak tour was born in Banská Bystrica - the idea of presenting the calendar of domestic production. Good production comes from my mind, heart and spirit, and from a pure heart I can say that the national tour of national calendars still has its own dignity, quality background and has been credible and convincing for other years, "Professor Jaroslav Uhel, chairman of the jury, wrote for the calendar.
This year the honor to present the cultural wealth of the Trenčian region and TSK's message as Green County was given in Banská Bystrica for the calendar and table calendar of the region for 2018.

His individual pages present familiar and less well-known monuments in the region. Thanks to it, not only the inhabitants of the county have the opportunity to learn about the locality of the Trenčín region, which until now have not even been heard. The artistic photographs capture, for example, the national cultural monument Beckov Castle, the oldest pilgrimage site in Slovakia, Skalka nad Váhom, one of the most beautiful chateaux in Central Europe - the Bojnice Castle or the picturesque church in Haluzice.
The TSK desktop calendar traditionally presents an environmentally friendly TSK project called Green County. On his pages there are pictures related to the individual areas of the project and the life of the inhabitants of the region, the county organizations and the Office itself. Their order represents the traditional annual cycle of the Trenčín Region as the Green County. The jurors also took on the novelty in the form of the puzzle game, which is part of the calendar. In the Table Calendars category, this representative of TSK won bronze .
The calendars of Trenčiansky region will be known throughout Slovakia
Winning calendars in all categories are now wandering around Slovak towns. "Our appreciation, of course, is enjoying. The exhibition is additionally a beautiful added value.
