Children"s Painting Competition titled "Me and Europe" was organised by the Yambol Provincial Administration, jointly with the Yambol District Information Point. The competition is being conducted in relation to the national initiative "Month of Europe" and is a part of series of events whereby the European Year of Citizens 2013 will be celebrated.
The Children"s Painting Competition encompasses schoolchildren between 1st and 4th grade of all Municipalities in the Province of Yambol. The drawings of the young creative artists must be of European subject matter; reflect the cultural diversity of the European Union and its population and the place of each one of us as EU citizens.
The works may be submitted for participation by mail or on-the-spot to the address of the Yambol District Information Point: 34, Targovska str., by 26 April 2013. The three names of the participants, their age and contact phone number must be added to them. On 29 April, a competent hanging-committee will consider them and will select the best among them and the Children"s Painting Competition Winners Rewarding is planned to take place on 30 April 2013.
Along with the Children"s Painting Competition, the "Month of Europe" initiative will also be celebrated through other public acts with young people and concerts organised jointly by the Community Centres Association. The initiative is being conducted as a continuance of the successfully organised at the end of 2012 "Europe - Bulgaria" Week whereby we celebrated the 5th anniversary since Bulgaria"s accession to the EU.
Events related to the "Month of Europe" and the European Year of Citizens 2013 are outlined in the 2013 work programme of the Bulgarian Communication Strategy for Europe and their purpose is to familiarise the citizens of the country with their rights as EU citizens.
