Each separate group of contestants gets three winners of the first, the second, and the third prizes. The winners are presented with valuable gifts, trophy cups, and diplomas as well as letters of gratitude signed by Governor of Chelyabinsk Region. All in all, thirty state-run and eighteen private enterprises took part in the contest. Twenty participants won prizes and thirteen contestants were declared winners.
