Yerevan, Armenia -- The International Day of Peace celebrations in school 194 on September 21 included singing, dancing, and artwork for the students, followed by a presentation to teachers about peacemaking activities.

The program began at 10:00 am with singing and dancing, followed by a speech by the School Director Nune Manukyan, an Ambassador for Peace.

We organized two competitions for students on the theme "I am drawing peace." About 10 participants from ages 8 to 12 painted on paper, and about 150 participants from ages 6 to 12 drew with colored chalks on the pavement in front of the school. The jury looked at the work of participants and made some remarks.

The second part of program took place from 1:30 to 3:00 pm. About 25 school teachers and Ambassadors for Peace participated. First, the head of UPF-Armenia spoke about UPF vision and goals and its peace programs around the world. Then a discussion took place about universal values.
