KWN Awards Ceremony held in Japan

On February 22, the KWN Japan Awards Ceremony was held at Panasonic Center Tokyo in Japan. A total of 64 people attended, including KWN members from 8 finalist schools, judges, guests and media. The grand prix went to a video titled "There once was war here." created by Nakoso 1st Junior High School in Fukushima Prefecture. The video, which also won the Best Research Award, emphasizes the importance of peace and investigates a balloon bomb base camp in the town during the Pacific War through interviews with people who experienced that part of history.

After the ceremony, the children enjoyed learning about science and mathematics at Panasonic Center's RiSuPia museum. All the participants enjoyed the Panasonic hospitality.
