The event "How Knowledgeable You Are Kids" is an inter-school competition that has been organized for several years. The competition is a collaborative project between public and private educational institutions in the southern region of Ecuador and northern Peru. Students from 5th, 6th, and 7th grade of basic education from these institutions participate in the competition to stimulate their intellect and encourage their interest in general culture in English.
The event has gained popularity due to its focus on the productive skills of the English language, which are fundamental for effective communication. With the help of their teachers, students prepare to demonstrate their mastery of the linguistic competencies acquired in the English language. In addition to being an opportunity for students to strengthen their language skills, "How Knowledgeable You Are Kids" also seeks to strengthen bonds of friendship and camaraderie between educational institutions from different provinces and countries. It is expected that these links will foster the development of future corporate projects in the field of education.
Overall, "How Knowledgeable You Are Kids" has become an effective way to promote participation in events related to the English language and recognize the linguistic talent of students. Many of the students who have participated in the event have been motivated to continue their education in English and participate in similar events at national and international levels.
The contest contents will be divided into five categories, and the questions within each category will have a score ranging from 10 to 50 points, depending on their level of difficulty.

The Academic Excellence Award was created as a means of recognition to those institutions that excel in the different events of the Gerardina Binational Olympics of Academic Excellence (BIOLEAGE for its acronym in Spanish).
In each of the events that constitute BIOLEAGE 2023, gold medals will be awarded for the first place, silver for the second, and bronze for the third. Each medal will have a points scheme, which will be applied only if the medal was achieved with a score greater than the 75% of the total event’s grade, that is: 10 points are awarded for each gold medal obtained in a test, 7 for a silver, and 5 for a bronze one. Through this system, any institution that gets the minimum score of 300 points out of the total may become a creditor of this Award. In the event of a tie in points, the number of gold medals obtained under the scoring modality will be taken into account.
