Co-organized by: CMIC HOLDINGS Co., Ltd. Special thanks to The Keith Haring Foundation, Miss Grand Japan Supported by Agency for Cultural Affairs (Government of Japan), Yamanashi Prefecture, Yamanashi Prefecture Board of Education, Hokuto City, Hokuto City Board of Education

This drawing contest is the realization of our wish for children of the world to nourish hopes and dreams for their future. Officially recognized by the Keith Haring Foundation, its diverse, international cast of judges is also the appeal.
2022 marks the 14th year since its inception. We have been receiving countless original artworks from many children in many corners of the world. Some draw dreams, loved ones, and sports, and others passionately express their wish for world peace and equality. However, more children have increasingly submitted entries about environmental issues in recent years. Listening to the “voices” of our children living through environmental crises in real-time, this year, we have shifted our focus more on the aspect of the contest where children can freely talk about the environment through their creativity.
