    More than 200 students from primary schools in the Podlaskie region of Poland were awarded during a ceremony held last Monday to honour their achievements in subject competitions. The ceremony marked the end of the 2022/2023 school year competitions, which selected 209 winners across 13 different subjects.

    Podlaskie Voivode, Bohdan Paszkowski congratulated the winners and hoped that their achievements would contribute to raising the level of education and civic engagement in Poland. Beata Pietruszka, the Podlaskie Regional Education Authority’s curator, reported that the competition for English, mathematics, and Polish subjects had the most significant number of participants. She also announced that Laura Sobiecka, a student from Primary School No. 50 in Białystok, won five titles in geography, history, English, German, and Polish, making her the most awarded student in the competition.
