Shorecrest High School students won first place in two divisions of the 27th Washington State Japanese Speech and Skit Competition. It is sponsored by Hyogo Business and Cultural Center (Hyogo is the sister "state" of Washington).

Thirty schools with Japanese programs from around Washington state participated. The event was held at the Mountaineers Club in the Goodman Auditorium at Magnuson Park.

Shorecrest won first place in the Level 2 Skit competition (Annie Yi, Melissa Tran, Becca Wood, and Zack Loffelbein). Shorecrest also won first in Level 3 (Phung Tran, Emma Orton, Daniel Lizarraga, and Sage Alexander). In addition, Zara Qatir of Shorecrest competed in the Level 1 Speech Competition and placed first.

The students write, memorize and perform their own skits using state guidelines for grammar at their level. The teacher for Japanese 2 is Sachiko Smith. The teacher for Level 3 is Kelli Spann. Soran Bushi, a Japanese dance group at Shorecrest, also performed at the event.
