Byeloretsk high school team wins UrFU's Test Drive contest

Four students from Bashkortostan's Byeloretsk high school No. 14 have been named the winners of Ural Federal University's Test Drive presentation contest.

George Shtyrlaeva, Roman Zhmaev, Daniel Lygina and Dmitry Lygina received the most votes for their UrFU promotional campaign. In total, the team received 3,401 likes on Facebook, which they attributed to their aggressive word-of-mouth promoting.

In total, 350 high school students divided into 152 teams from 26 different countries submitted public relations presentations for the Test Drive program. On Dec. 5, a national winner will be announced. The winning team will receive a subsidized college education at UrFU.
