Art for peace

Haruka Shoji

Young people are creative and enthusiastic agents of change energetically demonstrating their desire to tackle global challenges and make their own mark on history, says UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

His comments resonated on the day a young Japanese artist was presented a certificate and cheque by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for winning the United Nations "Art for Peace" contest.

The on-line contest was co-sponsored by the UN and the Harmony for Peace Foundation and ran from the 1st of February through the 30th of April 2012.

Seventeen-year old Haruka Shoji won first place in the oldest age group and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon celebrated Haruka Shoji's work.
