The Japan Bowl® is a Japanese language competition created in 1992 by the Japan-America Society of Washington DC (JASWDC). The Japan Bowl tests the achievements of high school students throughout the United States who are studying Japanese. But what makes the Japan Bowl unique is that the competition goes beyond language and asks students about Japanese culture, society, daily life and customs, history, geography, and current events. The Japan Bowl is not an exam; it uses a fun but challenging “quiz bowl” format. Students represent their school and compete as members of 3-person teams, based on how many years they have studied Japanese.

This is the Pacific Northwest’s regional competition. More info, click here.
