This day-long competition is designed for high school students from Western Pennsylvania and the tri-state area studying Japanese language. Japanese language students of all levels and students who are involved in Japan-related cultural activities, are able to compete against other area students in speech or poster activities. Non-language students are eligible to compete in the poster contest. Each year over 90 students participate.
Students who compete in speech levels are required to write and memorize a speech on the chosen topic for the contest. Winners receive prizes and trophies!
There will be lots of fun Japan-related activities for participating students and parents.
