The Russian Bear Cub Contest is considered the “younger brother” of 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 towards the Russian language, unveil its beauty and richness to students, and encourage them to participate in engaging international competitions.
This year the Russian Bear Cub Contest was held on November 15. About 8 000 of 2-12 grades from 300 schools inArmenia and 13 schools in Stepanakert were registered for participation in the contest.
The Russian Bear Cub 2018 tasks and answers are available here.

Russian Bear Cub plays an important role in integrating the children of Russian speaking families living and working in Armenia in the educational system of the country. On the one hand, it helps further the popularization of the Russian language in Armenia, and on the other hand, it develops and improves students’ linguistic thinking and gives extra motivation to study new foreign languages while at the same time extending their knowledge of the mother tongue.

in a familiar environment for the students.
The tasks are geared towards developing students’ linguistic thinking and abilities.
The tasks of the contest do not depend on specific learning programs or curricula.
The competition is held in one round and on the same day, without any qualifying rounds.
This is not the goal of the competition. Each student competes with himself, revealing his own potential and testing his knowledge in Russian language and literature.
It is a key principle in all countries that students receive small souvenirs on the day of the competition, and all participating schools and students are awarded certificates of participation.
