Do children of Chicago and children of Sofia perceive their city, family and friends the same way? We will find out when the best competition entries in each age group will be exposed in the Marble Exposition Hall at the Sofia City Library on June 1, 2012.


2012 Children Art Competition and the exhibition are organized in the framework of  Chicago Days in Sofia, Bulgaria, co-organized by the Friends of Chicago Foundation, Sofia City Hall and the Embassy of the United States in Bulgaria for a second consecutive year.
