[Odawara City] Report on implementation of selected ideas for “Odawara Youth Support Competition”
Toward the realization of Odawara City’s future city vision, “Odawara, a city that the world admires,” we will be promoting the development of an attractive city where young people can realize their dreams. We are looking for ideas unique to young people who would like to contribute.
After a review conducted in July last year, four ideas were selected. We provided subsidies to the young people who made proposals and provided support to turn their ideas into reality.
At the implementation report meeting held on Saturday, March 9th, young people reported to the mayor about their activities leading up to the realization of their ideas.

“Shin Odawara Screening ~High school students tried to promote Odawara~” will be held!

We created video works with Odawara as a theme (Odawara Hayashi, Odawara wind chimes, etc.) and held screenings to show the unknown charms of Odawara to a wide variety of people.
【comment】
Regarding the work I created, I would like to share with you the “eiga for high school students” held last year.
We were able to convey the charm of Odawara to many people both inside and outside of Odawara city, including receiving an award at the “World Cup 2023” (Movie Koshien).

Product brochure
Presentation to related parties
We propose “Shin Japanese sweets” using “mandarin oranges” and “rice flour” grown on abandoned farmland. By using more raw materials produced in Odawara, we have planned and produced products that can contribute to regional revitalization.
【comment】
We approached this project with the concept of “creating a new middle that is popular with young people.”
The raw materials are agar and white chocolate from Hayakawa mandarin oranges grown by the senior network Odawara & Ashigara, and the rice flour from Shimura Beikokuten, which works on regenerating abandoned farmland, is used for the Monaka skin, making Umezono a unique Japanese sweet. The product was completed using the following manufacturing method, and the Shin Japanese confectionery “Mikanko Komonaka” was completed.
For the package, students from the KGU Ninomiya Seminar Odawara team created a design that would appeal to young people.
From now on, after trial sales, we aim to start full-scale sales from next year onwards.
“Odawara Youth Symposium” will be held!
[Idea name]
Junior and senior high school student future planning event
[Proposer]
The beginning of miracle
We held the symposium with the hope of creating a place outside of school for junior high and high school students who feel like they don’t have many opportunities to pursue their interests or dreams. 【comment】
Through encounters with role models active in Odawara and middle and high school students of the same age, participants were able to think about their past, present, and future selves and create an opportunity for them to take a step forward.
“Foot Golf Experience Session” will be held!
[Idea name]
porte de foot golf
[Proposer]
Naoko Miura
We held a trial session to raise awareness of “FootGolf,” a new sport in which you kick a soccer ball around a course like golf, and to promote sports, health, and well-being through “FootGolf.” . Many people of all ages participated in the trial session where Mr. Miura, an active athlete, gave a lecture.
【comment】
We hope to continue creating opportunities for everyone in the community to shine through foot golf, regardless of age or disability.

Implementation report meeting
At the implementation report meeting, young people reported to the mayor about their activities leading up to the realization of their ideas, and exchanged opinions on their impressions of participating in this project and future prospects.
Young people made positive comments such as “I want to continue this activity” and “I want to work as a student organization and expand the scope of our efforts.”
