JAPANESE LANGUAGE SPEECH CONTEST 2017 DATES

For over 25 years, the Texas State Japanese Language Speech Contest has been inspiring Japanese language learners of all levels and ages to improve their Japanese by providing an opportunity to demonstrate oral language communication skills.  The contest also strives to bring together the Japanese and American communities to advocate for and to celebrate Japanese language learning, and to encourage students to further their understanding of Japan, its people, and its culture.

Regional contests are held in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.  First and second place winners from each region advance to the State contest held in Houston.
