With electronic cards with drawings of participants, you can congratulate friends and relatives from February 23.

In project “Active Citizen” Voting dedicated to the All-Russian competition of children’s drawings has begun “Defenders of the Fatherland”. It is held by the Victory Museum and the Yunarmiya movement.

Over 10,000 entries were submitted to the competition. Of these, 15 drawings by artists from the Moscow region were selected for the People’s Choice nomination. The winners will be determined by voting in the Active Citizen. Their works will be included in a limited series of greeting cards for Defender of the Fatherland Day.

The works were divided into three age categories: among schoolchildren from seven to 10 years old, from 11 to 14 years old, from 15 to 17 years old. A winner will be selected in each category. Young artists drew heroes of the past and present, the military, weapons and equipment, orders and medals, as well as the main symbols of the holiday: St. George’s ribbon, laurel branch and star.

“Over the centuries of history, this holiday has repeatedly changed its name, but the main thing has always remained the same: February 23 honored those who served the Motherland, fought against its enemies for freedom and independence, who guard the peace and security of every inhabitant of our country. Greeting cards created by children will be a wonderful gift for today’s defenders of the Fatherland,” said Alexander Shkolnik, director of the Victory Museum.

The drawings of all participants will be included in the museum’s online exhibition and will be published on its official website on February 11. Everyone will be able to choose a postcard they like and send it by e-mail to their friends and relatives, writing a congratulatory text to it.

The results of the competition will be summed up on February 23. All participants will receive diplomas and thanks from the organizers, and the winners will receive sets of printed collectible postcards.

Project “Active Citizen”has been working in Moscow since 2014. During this time, more than 5.7 million people have joined it. They can decide which streets, yards and parks need to be improved, how city clinics, libraries, multifunctional centers should work, or choose events for festivals and holidays.

Decisions supported by the majority are implemented in the city. You can see the changes that have taken place in Moscow thanks to “active citizens” on the online map. It already has more than 1.7 thousand objects. You can evaluate these changes in the rubric “Pulse of the capital”.

The Active Citizen project is being developed by Department of Information Technologies of the City of Moscow and state treasury institution “New Management Technologies”.
