About The 20th JQA International Environmental Children’s Drawing Contest


What is JQA International Environmental Children’s Drawing Contest?


Since 1999, Japan Quality Assurance Organization (JQA) and International Certification Organization Network (IQNet) have been hosting the JQA International Environmental Children’s Drawing Contest for children aged 7 to 15 years old from around the world, supported by UNICEF Tokyo Office.


So far, the contest has been held 19 times with over 14,000 entries and this year we’ve had entries from a record breaking 98 countries and regions. In total, we have received more than 290,000 drawings up to now. Full of imagination and artistic sensitivity, children drew pictures about nature and animals, their families and the surrounding area. The pictures also contain the message towards global environment, beyond borders and differences in their background cultures and languages.


As the organizer, we hope that this contest provides the children an opportunity to think about the global environment, by expressing their inspiration from nature’s bounty. At the same time, we believe that the efforts to protecting the global environment will be further encouraged through the appreciation of such children’s drawings.
