The participating students have won the Olympiad at their schools, and will contend for the top-ranking title in 17 different school subjects including mathematics, physics, chemistry, geography, history, and English.
The Sakhalin-1 Consortium, including SODECO, ONGC Videsh Ltd, Rosneft, and Exxon Neftegas Limited as the Operator, have sponsored the event for many years, and this year, the Sakhalin-1 Consortium donated more than 650,000 Rubles to the municipal Olympiad. A majority of the funding was used to purchase prizes and souvenirs for the event. Winners and participants will receive gifts like computer tablets and external hard drives to assist them with their future studies.
Good luck to all of the contestants!
