The Institute of Asian and African Countries at Lomonosov Moscow State University and the Saudi Academy at the Saudi Arabian embassy in Moscow, organized the competition. About 150 students from more than ten Moscow institutes will compete in five contests, including contests about the language, the history and the culture of Arab countries.
The top three contestants will receive valuable prizes. The winner of the contest about the Arabic language and Arab countries will win a prize from the Egyptian Embassy in Moscow - a week trip to Egypt.
The organizers of the competition hope these contests will become traditional and that the number of participants will grow annually.
The awards ceremony and the closing ceremony of the competition are scheduled for April 2.
