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.
Russian Bear Cub helps further the popularization of the Russian language in Armenia, improves students’ linguistic thinking and gives extra motivation to study new foreign languages.
The coronavirus-related challenges could not hold the Ayb Educational Foundation back from organizing an ongoing educational celebration for thousands of children and coming up with innovative and timely solutions. Ayb’s massive school contests are transferring to an online platform, enabling thousands of children to test their knowledge and logic via modern technological solutions while participating in the largest educational movement in Armenia.
We are hopeful that the organization of the contest in a new format will serve as a new impetus for the integration of innovations and authentic projects in our education.

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.
