2015 Australia-Japan Relations Essay Contest for NSW and NT Secondary School Students

The Consulate-General of Japan in Sydney would like to thank all the 584 students who entered the 2015 Australia-Japan Relations Essay Contest. We received many strong entries this year, which made it difficult for our judges to reach their decision. However, after much careful deliberation, we are proud to announce the winners of the Second Australia-Japan Relations Essay Contest for New South Wales and Northern Territory Secondary School Students 2015!

 

This year's topics were as follows:


Junior Division: You have been asked to organise a Japanese cultural festival for your local community. What aspects of Japanese culture would you introduce and how would you present them?


Senior Division: Both Australia and Japan face the challenge of an ageing population. Discuss some of the specific strategies each country is debating and employing to address this issue.


An awards ceremony is scheduled to be held in December 2015.

 

Thank you once again to all those who entered this year. We plan to hold the contest again in 2016 and we look forward to another strong contingent of entries.

 

Congratulations to the winners of the 2015 contest!
