Statement of Purpose
Since 1999, JASCO has been hosting the Annual Japanese Speech Contests, offering an opportunity for Japanese-language learners to showcase their achievements.
The objective of this event is to foster Japanese language education throughout the state of Ohio by supporting the continued effort of local public schools and colleges to improve the quality of the Japanese-language learning environment.
The winners of the contest will receive scholarships and various other prizes that will encourage them to continue studying Japanese language.
This competition not only provides highly motivated students
across the state with the chance to improve their Japanese language skills, but also inspires and
encourages others to broaden their understanding of Japan, its culture, and the strong ties between
Japan and United States.
