In 2018, the NPRC regional and national contests will be funded solely through donations. All students participate free of charge. This competition exists because donors like you know that improving language and public speaking skills, enhancing critical thinking, and building self-confidence among youth are paramount to Armenia’s future. This competition exists because you care about cultivating a love of words and creativity in committed learners. Thank you for supporting a love of poetry, a celebration of learning, and a new generation equipped to shape tomorrow’s Armenia.
