McLEAN, Va., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- USA TODAY, official U.S. representative to the International Festival of Creativity in Cannes, announced today the winners of the 2013 Young Lions "Team USA" competitions.  Through this annual competition, USA TODAY helps to identify emerging American creative talent and celebrate them on a global stage.

"Hosting the Young Lions competition is one of our favorite parts of being the official U.S. representative to Cannes Lions, as we are honored to help provide young creative minds from this country with an opportunity to participate in the International Festival of Creativity in Cannes," said Sandra Cordova Micek, Senior Vice President of Marketing for USA TODAY. "We look forward to this year's Festival and wish the U.S. Young Lions team luck competing against their global peers."

The work submitted for Young Lions this year focused on KaBOOM!, a non-profit dedicated to saving play for America's children by creating great playspaces through the participation and leadership of communities. All competitors worked from the same creative brief and were tasked with building awareness for KaBOOM! across the nation.

The 2013 "Team USA" competition included teams from advertising agencies across the U.S. with 393 teams registering and 232 total entries. The four teams chosen will represent the U.S. and compete in the Young Lions competitions during the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity this June.
