4th Kao International Environment Painting Contest for Children

Date: 21/03/2013 to 12/09/2013     Location: Japan

Kao Corporation (President and CEO: Michitaka Sawada) accepts entries for the 4th Kao International Environment Painting Contest for Children, beginning March 21, 2013.




This contest aims at encouraging the world's children, who will bear the future of the Earth on their shoulders, to think seriously about protecting the environment by depicting things that they can do in everyday life. While putting things drawn in their paintings into action, they are also asked to encourage their friends and adults to take action together. Since 2010 when the Kao Group started this contest, a cumulative total of 15,797 entries from 57 countries and regions including Japan has been received, and the number of entries is expanding globally.

Prize-winning works will be on display at the Eco-Products 2013 exhibition held in Tokyo in December. In addition, winners, whether in Japan or from overseas, of the "eco together" - Planet Earth Grand Prix and the "eco together" - Kao Prize will be invited to attend the award ceremony at the venue. The contest is being widely publicized all over the world, both via the Kao website and through other media.

Kao Group has promoted the "eco together" initiatives together with consumers and business partners. The Group will strive to establish stronger alliances with environment conservation activities in wider social arenas, by proposing ecological approaches through the whole product life-cycle from raw material procurement to final disposal.
