Taiyo Oil Co., Ltd. will be special cosponsor of the 26th Ehime Shimbun Primary School Book Report Contest, organized by the Ehime Shimbun Co., Ltd. newspaper company.
The Contest is open to all primary school pupils in Ehime prefecture. The 24th Contest awarded the Prefectural Governor's Prize and the Ehime Prefecture Superintendent of Schools' Prize, to which the 25th Contest added the new School Prize, awarded to the school that has worked hardest to foster reading and writing skills. As such, the Ehime Shimbun Primary School Book Report Contest plays an ever greater role in encouraging further improvement in elementary education in its educational and motivational aspects.
Taiyo Oil will continue supporting activities of this kind that aim to bring up upstanding leaders of tomorrow from among today's youth as part of its social action programs. This marks the fourth year in which Taiyo Oil has been a cosponsor of this contest.
