Entries Now Open for the Sixth Kao International
Environment Painting Contest for Children

 
April 2, 2015
 

The Sixth Kao International Painting Contest for Children is now open for entries, as at April 2, 2015, according to Kao Corporation (President and CEO: Michitaka Sawada).

Since announcing the Kao Environmental Statement in 2009, Kao Group has been active in environmental conservation aligned with the theme of eco together, partnering with consumers, business partners, and communities. This contest is one of the activities aligned with the theme of eco together and this year will mark the sixth time the contest has been held since its launch in 2010.

The Kao International Painting Contest for Children aims to encourage children around the world to think seriously about conservation of the environment around them and to depict what they can do to conserve resources in everyday life, as they will also be the leaders of the future. Children are encouraged not only to take action as depicted in their paintings but also to encourage their friends and adults to take action in the same way. Last year, 8,753 entries were received from 30 countries and regions, including Japan. Cumulative entries received since 2010 now total 33,066 paintings.

Prize-winning works will be on display at the Kao booth in the Eco-Products 2015 exhibition to be held in Tokyo in December. Winners of the eco together Planet Earth Grand Prix and the eco together Kao Prize will also be invited to attend an awards ceremony held at the venue. The contest is being widely publicized all over the world, through both the Kao website and other media.

Kao Group will continue to strive to contribute to building a sustainable society through proactive engagement of our stakeholders to build trust and closer relationships.
