At the request of several countries, where the children have end-of-the-year exams in November, SPES has agreed to extend the participation date of this International Internet Competition until the end of February 1998.

So young cybernauts: there is more time to be creative and to produce an environmentally-friendly story/play with animals of your country in the form of hand-crafted toys. Do remember to utilise mostly typical materials.
