On the theme of “Food”, which fosters a healthy body and mind and rich human characteristics, the Foundation holds the Junior High School Students’ Essay Contest, where participants express their gratitude to important people in their lives for memorable meals or dishes through their essays. Aimed at junior high school students nationwide, we endeavor to promote dietary education by celebrating and widely circulating outstanding entries. In continuation from last year’s contest, entries were received on the theme of “The People who are Important to Us, and Saying ‘Thank You’: Memorable Dishes and Gratitude for Meals”, totaling 2,140 essays received in fiscal year 2019. The Gold Prize-winning contestants participated in a hands-on experience of traditional dietary culture in Gunma Prefecture, which became an opportunity to deepen their understanding of dietary education.
