The 30th Annual Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention is a cultural exchange program, July 12-24, 2018, in Fukuoka, Japan for students in Hawaii born between September 1, 2006 and August 31, 2007.

JASH selects six students (three boys and three girls) to serve as Junior Ambassadors (JAs). The JAs will join over 200 students from 40 different Asian-Pacific countries and regions in Fukuoka, experience living with a Japanese host family for approximately seven days, and participate in a five-day APCC global youth camp.

The APCC’s vision is to deepen appreciation for the cultures of other nations and regions with the aims of promoting mutual understanding and friendship, nurturing international awareness in young people, and working toward world peace and co-existence. It is hoped that the JAs will build an international network of friends.

All items listed below are to be submitted together as a completed packet and mailed directly to the JASH Office by FRIDAY, December 15, 2017. Email submissions are not acceptable.

Your completed application packet must include:

  • The Applicant Signature Page (pg. 5)
  • The APCC Junior Ambassador Application Form with photo
  • Two Teacher Recommendation forms each sealed in separate envelopes
