August during Japanese class, the students chose a writing competition to enter and worked hard on creating their pieces.
The results are in for the 70th Yomiuri Shimbun National Elementary and Middle School Writing Competition, and two UPBEAT students won prizes! Congratulations to Yoshiaki Egashira from third grade (lower elementary division) and Sho Matsuzaki from fourth grade (upper elementary division).
We received the award certificates from the Yomiuri Shimbun and presented these to the students, and all of their classmates and the UPBEAT staff cheered them on together.
Congratulations, Yoshiaki and Sho!
