We would like to congratulate all of the participants. The judges were impressed with the quality of their speeches and had great difficulty selecting the winners. Well done!
This year’s national champion Amanda Deacon will receive return air tickets to Japan. A huge thank you to Air New Zealand for supporting our event. Amanda’s winning speech video clip will be released soon through JSANZ Facebook and JSANZ website.
Jack Hayes and Corey Croker will receive Prezzy cards, sponsored by the Sasakawa Fellowship Fund for Japanese Language Education and the Japan Foundation.
We hope the participants continue their Japanese learning journeys and wish them all the best for their future.
