About the Competition
The goal of the competition is to promote the knowledge and use of the Ukrainian language among children and young people in Ukraine and throughout the world.
The Ukrainian language competition was established in 2000 with the support of the distinguished Canadian-Ukrainian philanthropist Petro Jacyk. In Ukraine the Competition is conducted by the League of Ukrainian Philanthropists.
