The European Junior Olympiad is a competition for IT beginners. It was first held in 2017. The contest format is similar to that of the International Olympiad in Informatics. Each country is represented by a team of four schoolchildren under 15. Participants are selected based on results of national competitions. In Russia it is the All-Russian Olympiad in Informatics. Detailed information about the Olympiad and results of the competitions are published on the official website.

Moscow pays great attention to teaching informatics and programming. Schoolchildren can attend various online courses and IT classes for in-depth study of the subject. In addition, the capital actively cooperates with leading universities and companies of the industry. This enables boys and girls to see the prospects of education and career in the IT field that is in high demand in the modern world.
