A group of students from Soka Senior High School in Tokyo won the English Paper Champion Prize this week for their English-language newspaper featuring articles on world peace, human rights and nuclear disarmament.

The first installment of the All Japan Junior and Senior High School English Newspaper Contest, held Sunday in Tokyo, saw 10 high schools and two cram schools take part, with each presenting four-page tabloid papers they produced.

Under the Student Times Project, jointly run by The Japan Times and Global Education Information Center (GEIC), the participating students created the newspapers themselves — from coming up with story ideas to interviewing, writing and layout.
