At the start, participants were given an envelope with the tasks which they had to perform within three hours. How do you see the spring city and your school? What is your city of childhood and how Alekseevka differs from other cities of Belgorod region and Russia? These are the questions the children had to find photoresponse.
Children made talented works, they made it with love, each of the participants had his own shooting angle, his vision of the world. But the idea of purity and beauty of his native land has run through all the pictures.
It's nice that there were photographs dedicated to the EFKO Group, not only as to the core region enterprises, but also as to one of the main city sights.
At the end of the contest the three teams with the highest number of points gained a gratitude and valuable presents by EFKO Group, the other participants received certificates of participation and souvenirs.
