Second prize:
Ichika Miyata in Isahaya, Japan (8 years old)
《Message from the artist》
"Peace"
I want the world to be peaceful, so I drew a picture of children around the world getting along with each other and standing hand in hand on Meganebashi Bridge. Beside Meganebashi Bridge, there is the Japanese yokai Amabie-san. Amabie-san saved a person named Taro. It was because Taro's mother had caught a cold. So I thought if I draw a picture of Amabie-san, everyone in Isahaya City will be fine and healthy.

I hate war and it is always my question why people and states quarrel? Because the earth has enough space for everyone.
My peaceful city has these elements:
1. Safe and without any war.
2. No pollution in the environment.         
3. Support for blind and disabled children.
4. No child labor. Children have everything, such as clothes and bicycle. These things are not an unattainable dreams for them.

Praying for world peace, I drew a heart-shaped balloon in the center, and balloons of various national flags surrounding it. Along with doves, which are symbols of peace, I added buildings that typically represent each country. In this way, I depicted my "peaceful towns."
