    Ahead of the 2010 tournaments, the PUMA Mascot Design competition invited students at selected universities in Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, Egypt, Ghana and Tunisia to create a mascot design symbolizing their national team and the perception of football in their country.  The students were inspired by joy, hope, pride, honor, and glory to produce either a sculpture, picture, or painting.  Selecting winners from so many beautiful and inspiring entries was extremely difficult, and we would like to thank all of the fans who shared with us their vision of what their national team means to them, and how to reflect this in a mascot. We are pleased and proud to present the chosen winners for each participating country.
