He and Presidential Advisor Tsutomu Nakagawa presented individual winners the letter of commendation and commemorative gifts. Later, they spoke about the concepts, thoughts, etc. of their designs. Ms. Kawai, the winner of the highest award commented, "More than three years have already passed since my enrollment in Gifu University. I tried to reflect my image about the university on my design. I highlighted the beautiful nature of the university by using orange color (orange is the university color) with the red-bricked University Library as a strong contrast. As I created this design for casual use, I hope many people enjoy the goods."

We continue disseminating our activities to the public in order to fulfil our major mission of regional revitalization.
