27th National Japan Bowl

The 27th National Japan Bowl championship rounds will be held on April 12, 2019 at National 4-H Youth Conference Center. No registration is required to observe the championship rounds of the competition, and the event is free of charge. The Japan Bowl® is an academic competition for high school students across the nation who are studying Japanese. It tests not only their knowledge of Japanese language, but also their understanding of Japanese history, culture, and society. The format is modeled on the popular local quiz show, “It’s Academic.” Teams from across the nation compete for two days at three different levels, depending on how long they have studied Japanese. Created in 1992, now close to 200 students from across the US – from Guam to California – participate in the National Japan Bowl.
