The first finals of the All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren in the French language and economics were held this year. Moscow students won 27 diplomas of winners. The competition in French was held from March 23 to 26 in Moscow, and in economics – from March 20 to 26 in Yekaterinburg.

Muscovites became the absolute winners of the Olympiad in Economics in three parallels, gaining the highest number of points in two rounds. The ninth-grader Maxim Sinitsyn and the tenth-grader Alexei Kravatsky from the Second School Lyceum, as well as the eleventh-grader Ramil Nazmeev from School No. 57 distinguished themselves. In total, Muscovites have 18 diplomas of winners and 85 prize-winners.

Nine high school students from the capital were recognized as winners of the French Olympiad, 36 children have diplomas of prize-winners. The competition was held in two rounds (written and oral). For the first time a blind schoolgirl became the winner of the French Olympiad. The assignments for her were printed in Braille.

Sophia Balakhnina, an 11th grade student from school No. 1286, spoke about her impressions of the Olympiad.

“I am overwhelmed with joy, emotions are overwhelming! Of course, I wanted something big, but I didn’t expect such a result, to be honest. In the seventh grade, I began to study French in depth: I listened to podcasts, watched films, read books. And I am very grateful to my teachers and I want to say a huge thank you to them. One of the brightest impressions from the Olympiad is meeting new people. Because all the guys are very motivated, it is a great pleasure to be among them. Now I am finishing school and planning to go to college. Not everyone knows, but with a diploma from the All-Russian Olympiad, you can apply not only to linguistics, but also to the Faculty of Political Science at Moscow State University. I would like to study there. But, of course, I’m not going to forget French either, ”she said.

The All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren is held in 24 subjects. The competition includes four stages: school, municipal, regional and final. The guys who get the required number of points set by the organizers of the Olympiad pass to each next level.

The municipal stage is held for students in grades 7-11, and students in grades 9-11 can participate in the regional and final stages. The organizer of the last stage is the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation. Winners and awardees of the final stage can enter without exams in any Russian university in areas corresponding to the profile of the Olympiad.
