Russian Bear Cub. School Contest of Russian Language

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.

 

The 2017 Russian Bear Cub Contest was held on November 15 and a total of 9075 students (studying in the 2nd-12th grades) from 327 schools in Armenia and 12 schools in Stepanakert 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 contest results have already been summed up to reveal 452 prizewinners, 154 of which have registered best results.  Detailed reports on students’ results have been sent to all participating schools.

 

The full list of the 2017 Russian Bear Cub prizewinners as well as all participaing schools is available here.

The 2017 Russian Bear Cub problems and answers are available here.

This year, the award ceremonies was held in June, along with the award ceremonies of Kangaroo 2018 and Meghu 2017 contests in 30 cities of Armenia and in Artsakh.

 

All participating schools and students received participation certificates, and students with the best results were awarded diplomas and consolation prizes.

Please be informed that starting from the year 2016 participants from Armenia are able to make a payment via TelCell terminals as well. In case of paying through TelCell, make sure you know the code of your school. Click here to download the list of school codes and the payment guide.

 


The list of prizewinners of the Russian Bear Cub 2016 is available here. The tasks and answers of the Russian Bear Cub contest from 2014 to 2016 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.
