Speech Contest Scheduled for March 17

We are again sponsoring a Japanese language Speech and Recitation Contest on March 17 of this year. The topic of the speeches is:

   Ganbaro Nippon - Spirit from Silicon Valley”.
 
   がんばろう日本ーサンノゼから復興への元気を送ります…

We join the Spirit of Okayama to address the many challenges occuring in Japan, from the disaster recovery, to employment, to new government, to regional international stresses.
Maybe together, we can bring both countries in a positive movement.Gambaru Nippon - Spirit from Okayama

Also. again this year we are expecting participation of the Consuls from the San Francisco Japanese Consulate [information link].

Youth may deliver speeches and/or recite them from papers that they write.
There is a small entry fee to allow us to cover costs of this event.

Tasks include assisting with data base creation for cultural videos, working with a team that is moving historical information to computer storage, working with a team that is documenting the creation of the Japanese Friendship Garden and the important contributions by the Japanese-American people of the region. It may also involve adding material to this web site or our YouTube page.
