It is all the more pleasant to see in the photographs the festive costumes of peasant women of the Tobolsk province restored by local enthusiasts, embroidered caps from the Volga region or Altai boruk hats. The children of Russia are the daughters of nomadic reindeer herders from the Polar Urals in clothes made of seals, Kalmyk schoolgirls in red satin at the tulip festival, Moksha girls from Mordovia in festive costumes made of unbleached canvas, boys of the Khanty and Mansi peoples at the celebration of the Coming of the Sun, girls in sundresses for spinning wheels from Tula and so on. The photo exhibition also reflected the facts of the revival of cultural festivals and local customs in different regions of Russia.

A mobile exhibition of the same name was formed from the best works of the competition, which will travel around the country from June to November 2021. The exposition has begun its route. at the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation on June 15.

Director of the representative office of the international Chodiev Foundation in the Russian Federation and member of the jury of the competition Olga Monakhova, speaking at the opening of the exhibition, noted the uniqueness and originality of our large country presented in children's images, adding that the sponsorship of the exhibition is a logical continuation of the Foundation's activities, one of the main goals of which is "to support bright, beautiful, talented undertakings aimed at improving the life of the younger generation, our future."
