The goal of the Contest is to expose teachers to the American English resources and align them with the Kazakhstani English Subject Programme.
The Contest was supported by the Regional English Language Office, the US Embassy in Kazakhstan.

The Contest included 3 stages:

2. Four training webinars held by the President of ATENK Albina Kassenova, August Garnsey, English Language Fellow, Aleksey Derevyankin, IT specialist.
