Russian Bear Cub—School Contest of Russian Language

The Russian Bear Cub Contest is considered the “younger brother” of the Kangaroo international math contest, a much loved contest enjoying popularity among children around the globe. The Ayb Educational Foundation is the exclusive organizer of the "Russian Bear Cub—Linguistics for All" International Russian Language Contest in Armenia (since 2010) and in Artsakh (since 2011). The main goal of the contest is to spur general interest toward the Russian language, unveil its beauty and richness for students, and encourage them to participate in engaging international competitions.

 

The 2019 Russian Bear Cub Contest was held on November 14 in Armenia and a total of 8182 students (studying in the 2nd-12th grades) from 303 schools in Armenia and 17 schools in Artsakh took part in it.

We congratulate all participants, both students and schools, and express our gratitude for properly organizing and successfully holding the contest. We hope the number of participants will increase from year to year.

 

The list of the 2019 Russian Bear Cub prizewinners and all participating schools is available here.

 

Attention!!! The lists do not contain the names of the prizewinners of those schools in which some clarification is required. The names of the prizewinners of these schools will be published later.

 

The 2019 Russian Bear Cub tasks and answers are available here.

 

All participating schools and students will receive participation certificates, and students with the best results will be awarded diplomas and consolation prizes.

This year, the award ceremonies will be held in June, along with the award ceremonies of Kangaroo 2020 and Meghu 2019. The Ayb Foundation will additionally notify the schools about the venue, address, day and time.
