Nihongo Philacon 2020

Join JASGP and Villanova University for a fun, friendly, and free Japanese language quiz show open to high school students studying Japanese. The name is taken from the Japanese word for Japanese – nihongo​ – and a Japanese style contraction – Philacon, which is short for Philadelphia competition (the “m” becomes an “n” in Japanese pronunciation).

Hosted by Villanova University, eligible students can register online. Thanks to support from the Subaru of America Foundation, there is no fee to participate. Registration will close on Friday, March 20.

This free program has three levels of competition. Participants will be placed on teams for two rounds of questions on your nihongo knowledge. All participants will receive a boxed bento lunch and will enjoy a cultural demonstration. The day ends with prizes for the winning teams and gift bags for all participants. Registration is required.
