The range of the experienced organizers have been extended with the courageous newcomers - Rostov-on-Don, Kaliningrad, Samara, Perm, Orenburg and Minsk this year, they hosted competitions under the banner of the Winners' Games for the first time. In total, 781 people took part in the stages! 125 of them will come to Moscow in August as part of their regional or national team for the IX World Winners’ Games.
The regional stages were held in spring and slightly captured the very beginning of the summer. The geography of the Games gave joy with its breadth - the Urals, up to Siberia itself, the Volga region, the Southern regions, the Westernmost corners of Russia and even Belarus! Each city was unique! The organizers showed a creative approach and a great desire to hold competitions at a high level. Despite the fact that the Winners' Games are held according to the general rules in all regions, each was marked with something of its own, special.
For example, Tver, with its contests on dragon-boats, took us back to the time of the ancient Vikings and Scandinavian sagas. "The “Good world”, thanks for the implementation of the amazing idea!
Rostov-on-Don conquered everyone’s heart with its cohesive team and with a large number of local partner-companies who helped to hold the stage unselfishly. It was a brilliant debut - 3 days, 110 participants, a rich sports and entertainment program. Keep it up, “Darina”!
Ekaterinburg, as always, distinguished itself by a remarkable organization and a bright program. ”Children of Russia” - you are our vanguard!
Minsk is our special pride and joy! Belarus has become the first national stage in the history of the Winners' Games. You managed to create a real fest and gathered the children from all over the country in a wonderful, picturesque sports complex of Raubichi. It was an unforgettable sport holiday!

Chelyabinsk is our record-city concerning the scale of the regional stage - 173 participants! Special thanks to "Iskorka" for the extensive and vivid entertainment program!
Belgorod has charmed us with breadth of its soul and unconditional readiness to extend a friendly hand. "Saint Belogorye against pediatric cancer" invited the children from neighboring regions - Kursk and Voronezh regions, where the regional stages are not held yet, but the kids longed to take part in the competitions, their dream came true! Evgenia, a bow low to you!
Samara, as a newcomer, is at the very beginning of the journey, but the charitable foundation "Victoria" has already succeeded to prove that it can cope even with the most difficult issues.
It’s been not so long after the accomplishment of the regional stages. We have stormy discussions, business and friendly meetings, correction work, plans for the future ahead. In order to grow along with our heroes and go into adulthood, we also need to work hard, to refine ourselves and to improve. The road will rise to meet the one who walks it!
