The competition will end with a gala concert that will run for two days – January 25 and 26 – during the Competition Preparation Week.

The main prize is the opportunity to become the first volunteers for the WorldSkills Kazan 2019 volunteer team (first and second place holders) and for the 7th edition of the National WorldSkills Russia 2019 (third to fifth place holders).
