Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University is pleased to announce a literary competition LitHiker that will enable book-loving students to travel around the literary world.
The purpose of the project is to promote youth literacy and offer more fiction to students in a form of competition.
The idea of the student project belongs to TSU students. This year, LitHiker will be jointly implemented by TSU and Bakur Sulakauri Publishing.

Students from all educational levels are eligible to participate in the competition. Contestants will read 10 books selected for the project and write the tests specially developed for the completion. Three winners will be revealed who will be awarded with prizes introduced by the publishing house. The 1st place winner will receive GEL 500 in cash and a GEL 500 voucher; the 2nd place winner – a GEL 300 voucher and the 3rd place winner – a GEL 150 voucher. In addition, the winners of each round will receive books as gifts from TSU and Bakur Sulakauri Publishing.
