We had our Christmas card contest 2016 in 13th. and 14th. May. 41 children from Techo Propio in Ambato and Mocha participated. In Techo Propio contest was held in our library and in Mocha in a classroom in school “Joaquin Hervas”.
This year children choose the technique they wanted, we had crayon, water colours, and colour pencils.
