The primary objective of this contest is to encourage the learning and use of the Japanese language in the American community, particularly among non-native speakers. This speech contest represents a fun and challenging way for students at all levels to demonstrate their language and communications skills. It is a free event that is open to all American students. Each school may submit one (1) candidate and two (2) alternate candidates to the speech contest. Contestants are typically divided into the following two categories: Category 1: Contestants who come from homes where Japanese is not spoken (i.e., there are no members of the contestant’s family who understand or speak Japanese). Category 2: Contestants who come from homes where Japanese is spoken (i.e., there are members of the contestant’s family who understand or speak Japanese). This point applies to both native and non-native speakers of Japanese.
