Japanese Speech Contest

April 13, 2014 is the anual Japan speech contest.  Contestants of various levels of Japanese will memorize a genuine composed speech and present it in front of native Japanese speakers.  The winnter of this contest will receive a $1000 scholarship, a free all expenses paid round trip to Japan, and a free JR pass to use in Japan.  My instructor says that I have a good chance of winning with my speech.  So I hope I do well.  Wish me luck!
