J-Quiz Japanese Competition Quiz for High School Students

On Saturday, February 18, 2012, high school students from all over Minnesota and Wisconsin will gather together to put their knowledge of Japanese Language and Culture to the test!

Teams of students from each school will compete in 3 levels of difficulty.  Students will first write an essay, then participate in a preliminary round of questions regarding Japanese Language and Culture. The winners are sent to Washington D.C. to compete in the national Japan Bowl and attend the Sakura Festival.

This year again, we are inviting family of the students, and any interested parties to come and watch the finals of J-Quiz!  Please come and support your student, or all students with an interest in Japan.

There will also be a Flea Market offering Japanese items to support the winners’ trip to Washington DC. If you wish to donate curios or Japanese crafts, please contact the JASM office. JASM is also recruiting event sponsors. For more information, please feel free to contact the JASM office.
