Drawing on the long-established practice of oral exams and competitions within the Russian educational system, the Olympiada provides American high school and middle school students of Russian with a forum to demonstrate their achievement in Russian language. Participating students are also able to converse with native speakers and fellow students of Russian.
State and regional Olympiada competitions take place throughout the United States from February through May. Participants may earn gold, silver, or bronze medals in recognition of their proficiency in Russian conversation, poetry recitation, and Russian civilization at various levels of study.
Every third or fourth year, outstanding contestants throughout the United States can participate in an international Olympiada in Moscow, which brings together past winners throughout the world to compete and engage in a rich program of cultural activities.
