Nagawa Junior High School Wins Grand Prix Award in Japan
The winners of the Grand Prix Award were selected by KWN Japan on February 18. This year, a total of 71 elementary and middle schools from all over Japan participated in the KWN program. It was very hard to pick just a single video as the winner. After thorough judging, a video titled "The Girls Who Crossed Nomugi Pass," produced by Nagawa Junior High School in Nagano Prefecture, received the First Place Award. This video explores the history of events that took place on a steep and rugged mountain pass in their region, and seeks to tell the world about some important things that were learnt and how they apply to life today.
This is the school's second Grand Prix, following the one they received in 2010. The video will be entered into the KWN Global Contest 2013.
