LIHUE — Keiki ages 10 or 11 have a chance to participate in a Japan cultural exchange program this summer. The deadline to apply is Dec. 28.
The Japan-America Society of Hawaii (JASH) is accepting applications from Hawaii students born between Aug. 1, 2007, and Aug. 31, 2008, who want to serve as Junior Ambassadors (JAs) to the 31st Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention (APCC) from July 14-25 in Fukuoka, Japan.
Up to six selected JAs from Hawaii will join over 200 students from over 40 Asian-Pacific countries and regions at a global youth camp and stay with a Japanese host family. Travel between Honolulu and Japan, accommodations and transportation in Japan, and most other costs will be covered by JASH and the APCC. The selected JAs also prepare for the summer trip at monthly training workshops in Honolulu.
