On June 13, 2017, a Global Issue Poster Session event was held at the San-San Maru Building on the Kibana campus of the University of Miyazaki. At the event, groups of students from Omiya High School in Miyazaki City made presentations in English detailing their research on various issues related to natural or social science, with a focus on the posters they created. Students from UoM also conducted short presentations to introduce the overseas "Tobitata" scholarship program to the Omiya students.
A total of 79 Omiya third-year students, forming 24 research groups, participated in the poster session. The students were evaluated by around 20 judges, who included 8 international students at UoM, as well as the Vice-President and Director of UoM and other university staff.
In recent years, UoM and Omiya High School have cooperated in a range of areas in relation to Omiya High School's recognition as a "Super Global High School" by Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). These efforts are aimed at contributing to fostering global human resources and internationalization and vitalization of the local area.
