Pacific Northwest Japan Bowl 2023
Updated: Mar 24
Pacific Northwest Japan Bowl 2023 was held at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington on March 11. Live Your Colour Inc. is a proud sponsor of the event and our CEO, Maarlie Mari Wada participated in the event as a celebrity judge.
Japan Bowl is a great mix of language study with questions on culture, geography, customs, history and more in a Jeopardy-style quiz for high school students to test their knowledge and compete with each other for amazing prizes. Thirty-nine high school students from Oregon and Washington competed in this regional championship and the winners of the level three and four divisions advanced to the 31st National Japan Bowl in Washington DC in April.
The event is owned and hosted by the Japan-America Society of Oregon (JASO) with support from over 20 companies and organizations, and run by many volunteers and staff. It offers a great experience of learning deeper the Japanese language and culture for high school students and contributes to the Japan-America relationship in the future.
It was a great honor to support the event and we wish luck to the winners in the National Japan Bowl!
