author: Dmitry Slezin

The International Hockey Federation approved this teddy bear as the talisman of the youth hockey world championship-2013. The championship will take place in Ufa.

The championship’s organizing committee has held an open contest and everybody might send his variant of future talisman during one year. The winner had to be announced still in the beginning of February but the commission failed to choose the main symbol of the forthcoming championship. In total complexity more than one hundred variants have been received.

Now the choice is made. The variant, offered by Eugenia Nitylkina from Moscow, is announced the winner. The author will be rewarded with 10 thousand rubles and souvenirs with the championship’s symbols.
