The best GTO mascot voting results in the mobile application of the All-Russian physical culture and sports complex “Ready for work and defense” (VFSK GTO) have been summed up. The organizer of the “Mascots of GTO festivals” contest is the Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation in conjunction with the federal operator of the GTO complex – ANO Directorate for Sports and Social Projects.
The contest includes three stages. At the first stage (from 23 April to 30 June), organizers accepted applications and mascot sketches from the participants. The second stage began on 1 July and ended on 1 October. During the second stage, people voted for the three best design projects to be proposed for approval by the Coordinating Commission of the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation on implementation and realization of the Russian National Health and Fitness Programme “GTO”. From 11 August to 10 September, in the mobile application of the VFSK GTO uploaded from the AppStore or Google Play, everyone could vote for the favorite mascot design project.
According to the voting results, three best projects created by Tatiana Efimova (Romashkovo, Moscow oblast), Anna Kuzmenko (Armavir, Krasnodar Krai) and Vladislav Dubkov (Troitsk, Chelyabinsk oblast) were selected. Now the Coordinating Commission of the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation on implementation and realization of the Russian National Health and Fitness Programme “GTO” will have to choose the winner of the contest from among three projects. The best project will be awarded before 7 November.
