The Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation and the Federal Education Agency have announced the results of the contest for the best symbol of the Teacher's Year. Anna Shcherbakova, a professional designer from Novosibirsk, was acknowledged as the winner of this contest.

According to the press centre of the Teacher's Year, the total amount of the emblems submitted for consideration is about 3000. 344 projects were chosen out of them. The emblem of Anna Shcherbakova depicts open hands of a teacher letting his nestlings-pupils out to the swirl of life. The author believes that "teachers are those people who create the future".

This emblem will serve as an identification and representative mark of the Teacher's Year in Russia and the brand book that is being elaborated on its basis for the time being will specify the style of all promo materials within the framework of the Teacher's Year. The winner and the laureates of the contest will get prizes.
