Student Ambassadors from Osaka

Since 1967, a college student who wins the Osaka – San Francisco Sister City Association President’s Award at the Annual English Speech Contest that had been given the opportunity to travel to San Francisco and be hosted by the San Francisco – Osaka Sister City Association.

In 2018, SOYNET started a new student ambassador program for Osaka high school students.  Lincoln High School’s Japan Club members hosted them to experience San Francisco high school student life in 2018 and 2019, and the program resumed in 2023 with Washington High School being the host school.   Lincoln is anxiously waiting to host another two Osaka students March 10-19th.
