Pupils of the Laboratory for Gifted Children at the Moscow Gaidar Library have become winners of the New Pushkin Award.

      Besides, the artist Konstantin Sutyagin with his literary and art cycle About Happiness has been awarded the special diploma For Harmony of Word and Image.

      The winners are traditionally selected by the award council headed by the famous Russian writer Andrey Bitov.
