Taiyo Oil cosponsored the 62nd Yamaguchi Prefecture Primary School Pupils Animal Drawing Contest, following its cosponsorship of last year's contest.
The contest invited children from elementary schools and kindergartens in Yamaguchi prefecture to submit their drawings of animals and scenes from Akiyoshidai Safari Land, Tokiwa Zoo, and the Shunan City Tokuyama Zoo.
This year's contest attracted more submissions than last year: 1,768, of which a total of 264 were selected: 18 for the Special Prize, 35 for the Gold Prize, 70 for the Silver Prize and 141 for Honorable Mention. The Taiyo Oil Solato Prize, a special prize for a work selected by Taiyo Oil, went to Kotone Ariyoshi, a 5th grade pupil of Nakamura Municipal Elementary School in Kudamatsu City.
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.
