Marlton, NJ – Cherokee Russian-speaking students participated (virtually) in the Delaware Valley Olympiad hosted by Temple University on March 23, 2021.

The Olympiada of Spoken Russian is an annual competition for high school students held in the United States from February to May.

The competition included categories from Russian history and culture; recitation of poetry; and conversations related to family, school and sports.

Our students have prepared themselves months in advance for this unique and enjoyable event. It is with great pride that we announce that 10 students received gold medals, 8 received silver medals and 1 student received bronze medals.
