Thank you for posting this competition information. So often, students are marginalized in terms of their artistic talent and not taken seriously. It's great to see that people are celebrating student art . Thank you for sharing!

Firstly, i want to thank you for the "handmade toy" competition. I work as a teacher in an elementary school in Cyprus, and my little students were thrilled with this competition! They enjoyed every minute of the preparation, they used themes of Cyprus history and tradition to make their very special toys. I would like to ask, though, when are the results be announced? And, finally, are the projects of these contests going to be in your site, so we can all see some very nice ideas?
Thanks again, a lot.
