This year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Australian speech contest. The aim of the contest is to encourage learners who are studying Japanese to showcase their language skills in a challenging context.

The winner of High School Senior division and Open Division will be invited to compete with other states/ territories winners at the Japanese Speech Contest National Finals to be held at the Japan Foundation Sydney Office on Saturday 12 October 2019.
