The national drawing contest  “I draw my hope" as its theme, taking place as part of UNICEF’s 70th anniversary celebrations in partnership with the Ministry of National Education, has seen the participation of over 30,000 primary school children from public and private schools aged between 6 and 12 from all 22 regions of Madagascar.

Of all these drawings, following a rigorous selection process at the local and regional levels and conducted by representatives of the Ministry of Education; the Ministry of Culture, the Promotion of Handicrafts and the Preservation of Local Heritage; the Ministry of Communication and Relations With Institutions; and UNICEF, the three best drawings in each age category (6-8 years and 9-12 years) were sent to the national capital, Antananarivo, where a selection of the best drawing for each of the two age categories of the 22 regions of Madagascar was carried out by representatives of the Ministry of Education, UNICEF and artists.

Following an unveiling ceremony held yesterday, 4 April, at the Ministry of Education, the final 44 drawings are on display in the Hall of the Ministry of Education in Anosy from today through 9 April. The exhibition will then move to Tahala Rarihasina for exhibition from 10-19 April. The public is invited to view the children’s artwork and to vote for their favorites online via the Facebook pages of the Ministry of Education (Ministeran'ny Fanabeazam-pirenena) and UNICEF-Madagascar from 5-12 April. To vote, click “Like” on your favorite drawings.

The final result will be based on Facebook voting by the public combined with ratings from an inter-disciplinary jury. The final six winners – the top three in each of the two age categories – will be officially announced on 21 April.
