The events include a 50-meter sprint, a 600-meter run, long jump, high jump, and a 400-meter mixed relay race.  

The games are organised by the Department of National Education, Youth, and Sports, and supported by Physical Education teachers and volunteers of the Monegasque Athletics Federation.

The Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee is also participating by setting up a stand near the stadium to make students aware of the dangers of drug use and abuse.
