The Okinawa Hands-On NPO has won the Grand Prix and Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Award of the 7th Child-Support Program for the future sponsored by the Sumitomo Life Insurance Company. This Okinawa City-based NPO works to convey Okinawan traditional culture to the next generation through a picture-story show in the Shimakutuba dialect spoken in the islands. It also has a radio program on the topic of the history and culture of Okinawa.

“It is thanks to the people who love Shimakutuba,” Tatsuya Agena, the director of the NPO, said with pleasure. Ayaka Kamimura, a first grade student of Koza High School, said, “We are happy to be honored with this award because we have been working hard.”
