Sister City Exchange Visit - 2016

The Horseheads Sister Cities Association (HSCA) is pleased to announce the 2016 exchange visits between Horseheads and sister city Nakagawa, Japan. The exchange will start in March when a delegation of students and adults from Nakagawa spend a week in Horseheads exploring and experiencing family life, schools, and area attractions. Usually the trip to Horseheads is the first time the Japanese students have been abroad, so it is a very influential experience for them.

The reciprocal exchange trip to Nakagawa will be in early July, wherein Horseheads students and adults travel to Nakagawa exploring small community Japanese culture in a similar way. Students in grades 8–11 who reside in the Horseheads school district tax area and are interested in exploring Japanese culture through this experiential young ambassador opportunity are encouraged apply. Information and application materials are available at the Horseheads High School and Middle School guidance offices. Applications are due by Friday, April 1, 2016. However, applicants are encouraged to get applications in as soon as possible. Student selection will begin immediately upon receipt of completed material.

We are also looking for families with students in grades 7–9 who are willing to host two Japanese students in their home during their visit here the week of March 11–19.

For further details, contact Nakagawa Trip Coordinator, Annette Sechrist at 734–6727, or Kelly Murray at kmurray@horseheadsdistrict.com.
