UPDATE: 2020 Japanese Speech & Skit Contest will be held as video contest!
This year, our annual Washington State Japanese Speech & Skit Contest will no longer be held at the Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington, due to social distancing and stay-at-home restrictions currently in place throughout Washington State.
Now, we are excited to invite contestants to participate in our “RECord Video Japanese Speech & Clip Contest.” In this new contest format, contestants can submit a video of themselves speaking in Japanese and compete with others from the comfort of their own homes. Top videos will win a prize, and the best submissions may be premiered at the Japan-America Society of the State of Washington’s (JASSW) “Virtual Japan-In-the-Schools (JIS) Festival” to be held on June 4.
High school students who are interested in participating in the RECord Video Speech & Skit Contest should visit the official Japanese Language Speech & Skit Contest website.
For more information on participating in the Virtual JIS Festival, please visit JASSW’s event website.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
We eagerly await your participation in this unique opportunity!
