The last round of the competition marked a record in terms of participation: 144 students from 12 high schools.
On March 27, 2004 the participants in the competition gathered together for three hours and wrote an essay on a theme that the jury proposed right before the beginning of the event: When you start climbing the stairs of success, do not be unjust with other people, because you might meet them on your way back.
