At the beginning of the day's activities, entertainment was organized by the school, featuring dancing and singing. Then two competitions took place on the theme “I am drawing peace.” About 40 students ages 9 through 12 prepared pictures beforehand which they then drew with colored chalk on the ground in front of the school. Five Ambassadors for Peace served as a jury, looking at the works of the participants and making comments about them.

The three winners from each team were awarded a prize. All participants received small gifts from Universal Peace Federation representatives. This part of the program ended with dancing and singing and closing remarks by an Ambassador for Peace. 

About 15 Ambassadors for Peace participated in the afternoon program. The head of the Universal Peace Federation of Armenia spoke about UPF's vision and goals. After that, there was a discussion about plans and programs for the coming year and ways to involve more Ambassadors for Peace.
