2019 Japanese Writing Competition for Hobsons Bay Secondary Students is open – Prize pool of $1000

Hobsons Bay International Friendship Association (HBIFA) invites Hobsons Bay secondary school students from years 9 to year 12 to enter a Japanese writing competition with a prize pool of $1,000.

The HBIFA began 31 years ago between Hobsons Bay City Council and our Sister City, Anjo in Japan. This writing competition was established to increase awareness and foster relationships with our sister city.

The topic for this year’s writing competition is:

Describe at least three locations in Hobsons Bay you would take a Japanese student and explain why you would take them there.

The categories for the competition are:

Year 12 students (Unit 3-4 Japanese) to write approx. 600 characters/letters – Prize $350
Year 11 students (Unit 1-2 Japanese) to write approx. 500 characters/letters – Prize $250
Year 10 students to write approx. 400 characters/letters – Prize $200
Year 9 students to write approx. 400 characters/letters – Prize $200

Entries will be judged by a panel of HBIFA members and a representative from Anjo City.

The winner of the year 12 category will have their essay read to the Mayor (Cr Jonathon Marsden) and the Anjo student delegation at a reception in late June 2019. Entries are to be hand written in Japanese and English.

For any queries please contact Sue Gauci on 0408 171 261.
