About 800 schoolchildren who studied Russian in Israeli schools, Russian-speaking cultural and educational centers and evening schools from all regions of the country participated in the competition. 60 contestants made it to the final.

The winners were awarded with certificates, medals and the latest Russian editions of Russian literature. Two participants received tablets for originality and creativity.
