On December 22, 2014, an award ceremony was held at the Consul General’s residence for the winner and honourable mentions of the Children and Youth Art Competition Celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Consulate General of Japan in Vancouver. The competition was part of a series of events celebrating the history of the Consulate General of Japan in Vancouver.
A total of four honourable mentions and one winner received awards from Consul General Okada. While receiving their awards, the winners shared their thoughts and stories about their drawings.
Through this competition, children and youths fostered greater understanding of Japan and its longstanding relations with B.C. and the Yukon in the form of meaningful works of art.
