Amundsen Team Wins 2nd Place at 2021 Japan Bowl!

18 Amundsen students participated in the 2021 Illinois Japan Bowl on Saturday, March 13, 2021. The Illinois Japan Bowl is an academic competition that tests Illinois high school students who are studying the Japanese language on a wide range of topics including their knowledge of the language and their understanding of traditional and modern Japan. One Amundsen team comprised of Matthew Bell, Kailey Garcia, and Carmen Garcia, won 2nd place at the Level 3 competition behind the UChicago Lab School, beating out New Trier Township HS who came in 3rd. We are so proud of our Japanese Language Vikings and of their teacher, Ms. Hitomi Kameyama, for this great achievement. Congratulations to all!
