Presidency Drawing Contest: Children Awarded Prizes by Alexandr Vondra

Today children from all over the Czech Republic headed for the Straka Academy to meet the Deputy Prime Minister for European Affairs. Mr Vondra awarded prizes to them for their success in the ‘Best Presidency Postcard’ contest.

‘The idea behind this contest was to arouse the interest of the youngest citizens, but we were also curious. We wondered how the children would grasp this complex theme. The result is, in my view, a pleasant surprise,’ says Alexandr Vondra, Deputy Prime Minister for European Affairs. Altogether, the children, divided into two age categories, drew 645 original pictures on the following themes: ‘For six months, the Czech Republic becomes captain of the European team’ and ‘The Czech lion cub as king of the European safari’. The contest involved 73 primary schools from all over the Czech Republic, as well as a dozen individuals. The Czech EU Presidency Section of the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic launched the ‘Best Czech Presidency Postcard’ contest in May 2008.

The winning pictures were selected by a committee composed of officials from the Office of the Government and experts. Having carefully evaluated and compared all pictures, the committee chose 21 winning postcards, 13 of which will be available for download and sending on the Presidency website – – in the ‘Children on the Presidency’ section.
