On Saturday, February 15th, 2020, high school students from all over Minnesota will gather together to put their knowledge of Japanese Language and Culture to the test! Teams of students from each school will compete in 4 levels of difficulty. Students will first write an essay, then participate in a preliminary round of questions regarding Japanese Language and Culture. The winners of the Final Rounds are sent to Washington D.C. to compete in the national Japan Bowl and attend the Sakura Festival.
This year again, we are inviting the family of the students, and anyone interested to come and watch the Final Rounds of J-Quiz!
