This year competition took place on the basis of Chernigov State Technological University (ChSTU). Students from every university, regardless of the course and specialty, could sign up.

For Soft Industry it was the first experience of such event. In the future we plan to make Championship annual and hold it in several stages. Participants with different levels of knowledge and skills will be able to test their strength. We also plan to create a number of directions in which the competition will take place.
