Student Wins Japanese Speech Contest

Mr. Danny Jeon, a student majoring in East Asian and international studies and playing a major role in East Asian Studies Program activities, received first prize at the Japanese Speech Contest held at George Washington University in DC. This event included participation from major universities in the DC region, and winning first prize is a great honor for Danny as well as Japanese lecturers at JHU. As part of the prize, Danny received a round-trip ticket to Japan, a modest scholarship toward his studies ($3,000), and tuition to attend a summer intensive language course. What fantastic recognition of a job well done!
