Great Success of J-Quiz

Posted by on Feb 22, 2012 in Events | 0 comments

On Saturday, February 18th, J-Quiz, the Upper Midwest High School Japan Language and Culture Competition, was held at Normandale Community College in Bloomington. Students from high schools in Minnesota were invited to compete in this competition.  8 high schools, 83 students and 30 teams competed this year for the Grand Prize: a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the Sakura Festival and to compete in the National Japan Bowl. Like the J-Quiz, this nationwide contest tests high school students in their Japanese language and culture skills. Participating in this program can have a lasting impact on the lives of young people.

In order to make this program possible, JASM need your help to raise $10,000 to fund the competition,  and to send the winning students to Washington, D.C, April 12-14, 2012. Students and teachers value the trip as a unique incentive for students to study Japanese and for schools to continue offering courses in Japanese at the high school level.

Please help us with a donation! For more information, call the JASM office at 612-627-9357.
