Portrait of Mother – Competition

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Poland’s independence, the Polish Educational Society organises an artistic competition called “Portrait of the Mother”. The theme of the competition is to emphasise the vital role of the Mother in nurturing the Polish language during 123 years of occupation. We want to thank the present Mothers for continuing this difficult but glorious work among families and the Polish community abroad.
