In the attempt to additionally involve students of Kyiv schools, we have decided to hold SEPARATELY the Kyiv City School Drawing Contest “My Rights” as part of the all-Ukrainian contest, where one of the main organizers, among those mentioned above, is the Youth and Sports Department of the Kyiv City State Administration (Kyiv City Council’s executive body).
