    Sakura Medal
    The Sakura Medal is a reading program designed to encourage reading and enjoyment of good quality books. It was initiated in the 2005-2006 school year for students in participating International Schools across Japan. Students read books from short lists prepared by library media specialists in the participating schools and voted in April 2006 for a winner. The winning author received the Sakura medal and a diploma containing a certificate and a piece of original art. There was a student art competition for the design of the diploma art.
