Since 2010, about 60,000 people have tried their hand in the interactive educational project, many of whom later enrolled in leading Russian universities.

The main objective of the contest is to introduce students to work with archival sources of information on the history, theory and practice of Russian statehood. The educational project is aimed at finding and supporting young talents, popularizing humanitarian knowledge among young people.
