JASH Weekly Update: Good Luck To Our Japan Wizards Finalists!

Dear Members & Friends of JASH,

Join us in wishing GOOD LUCK to all of our FINALIST high school teams competing who will go head-to-head over Zoom this weekend for the chance to win educational trips to Japan! Through the JASH Japan Wizards Competition (JWC), 24 teams of three from 15 public and private schools on Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island of Hawaii have spent months studying Japanese culture, language, history, economy, pop culture, and MORE. After last weekend's Preliminary Round, 12 of these hardworking teams qualified to represent their schools in Saturday's Final Round. The JASH Japan Wizards Competition challenges Hawaii high school students at various levels of Japanese study to continue learning about Japan outside of their classrooms. By including a wide variety of topics, the JWC encourages holistic knowledge of Japan, supplementing the subjects learned at school. Special thanks to our program sponsor, Hawaiian Airlines, and our other major supporters for their continued support of U.S.-Japan education. Click here to view all of our 2022 JWC supporters.
