We are proud to announce that there is an Azerbaijani listed among the winners of the competition. Thus, Aziz Huseynov, an 11th-grade student of secondary school No. 15 named after M. Azizbayov in Ganja, who prepared for the competition with the support of Azercell, won a bronze medal! It is the second time that our schoolchildren have achieved high results in this competition.
