More than 200 children from the Nenets Autonomous Okrug took part in the drawing competition dedicated to the Deer Day. In the paintings of young talents and ripe cloudberries, and flashes of the northern lights, soft deer antlers and the Nenets plague. All children look at the tundra in their own way, but each with love.

The jury had a difficult choice: to determine the winners in each age category – 6-8, 9-11 and 12-15 years old. In the first age group, the winner was Alexander Ushakov, a pupil of the kindergarten “Semitsvetik”.

This drawing was drawn by my son in kindergarten. Sasha rarely takes pencils, but suddenly inspiration came – he tried very hard. Our teacher sent a picture to the competition. And now we just arrived from vacation, they called us and told us the good news, – the mother of the young artist Svetlana Ushakova smiles.
