QUIZ BOWL NEWS
Congratulations to Huron High School students Hao Hao Wang Pontius and Samantha Liu who won first place in Division 4, the second highest level, at the 2012 Michigan Japanese Quiz Bowl competition on the campus of Michigan State University (MSU). They study Japanese at Ann Arbor’s Ohara Language Institute and were one of 55 teams from across the state who competed in six different divisions in a quiz-bowl type format, exercising their knowledge of Japanese spoken and written language and culture. Instructor (and Huron parent) Kaori Ohara said, “It was definitely a team effort. The beauty of our teams was that everyone contributed. It was definitely not a one-man-show….The questions were not easy, but the students did well even under pressure.” Ohara Language Institute sent three teams to the competition, all of whom won first in their respective divisions.
