Taylor Award at a speech contest in Ishinomaki. 39 Junior high school students from Ishinomaki/Higashi-Matsushima/Onagawa made wonderful speeches. Someone talked their disaster experience, while someone explained the value of challenges. Manaka won the title and got the wooden Taylor trophy made by our carpenter Endo-san. Top 5 students participate the next stage, the Miyagi prefecture-level contest. Most ALT/JET teachers in this region came to the venue to cheer up their students, which remind me of Taylor. At least 3 champions were Taylor’s students.
