Under the slogan “Many Peoples – One Country!” from November 3 to November 8, 2023, the VIII International Educational Campaign “Big Ethnographic Dictation” will take place. The goal of the International Educational Campaign is to draw people’s attention to the history, culture, and traditions of the peoples inhabiting the country. This knowledge contributes to strengthening harmony, interethnic peace, and national unity among the peoples of the Russian Federation, as well as raising the level of ethnographic literacy among the population.

Millions of residents of Russia and foreign countries participate in the Campaign every year, regardless of age, education, religion, or citizenship. The Dictation first took place on October 4, 2016, with the participation of 90,000 residents of Russia. By 2022, more than 4 million people from all regions of Russia and 184 countries around the world had joined the Campaign.

The Dictation tasks are presented in the form of a test and include:

20 questions – a federal section common to all participants;

10 questions – a regional section unique to each subject of the Russian Federation.

The maximum score for completing all tasks is 100.

The duration is 45 minutes.

Working languages are Russian, English, and Spanish.

You can answer the questions in an online format from November 3 to November 8 on the official Dictation website www.miretno.ru.
