It is with great pride that we acknowledge the following students for their outstanding achievements: Danielle Rumshisky, Lily Potagal, Alexandra Medvinsky, Tomer Brook, and Emil Islamov were each awarded gold medals for their exemplary command of the Russian language. Additionally, Nick Chernov and Maksim Orlovskii earned silver medals, demonstrating significant prowess and skill.

Furthermore, Diana Kuznetsova was distinguished as the Top Heritage Performer, receiving the Olympiad’s grand prize. This special recognition underscores her remarkable talent and dedication to the study of the Russian language and culture.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the participants for their remarkable achievements.
