Competitions


#1

Does anyone know of any competitions or contests I could enter that involve Japanese? I’d like to win an award or be recognized while practicing my Japanese. I’m advanced level if that opens up anything.


#2

I hear Japanese embassies often hold speech contests. If you’re interested you could call your nearest embassy and see if they’re doing anything.


#3

If you’re in high school in the US, there is the Japan Bowl. Not sure if you have to register as part of a team sponsored by a school or if you can form a team with friends; I’ve never done it.


#4

I did Japan bowl when I was a senior in high school, it was a lot of fun but also super intense. I’d for sure do it again though!


#5

Japanese embassies and consulates will often sponsor those speech contests, but in my previous experience, they required you to be currently enrolled in an accredited Japanese course :thinking:

Email this guy and ask him. He might know.
