In addition, the kindergardens and educational centers of the municipality may also participate by bubble groups.

In the publication in networks, the category in which the participant is participating and the title of the costume must be stated, and the educational centers must indicate the name of the center and the participating course. To be eligible for the awards, the publications must be public so that the jury can see them.
