Applications are being accepted from Northwest Oklahoma high school student Rotarians for “a trip of a lifetime” to Japan, a long-standing NWOK Rotary Club partnership with club counterparts in the Pacific, a Rotary release said.
District 5750 Rotarians who are freshmen, sophomores and juniors are encouraged to apply for the two-week excursion to the Tohoku region of Japan, where they will be hosted by members of Rotary International District 2520, a Rotary D5750 release said.
“Japanese Rotarian clubs provide incomparable hospitality, including homestays, meals, tours and all other travel.”
Completed applications should be sent in for review by the Wings of Rotary committee, which will pick a group of nine to 10 to travel abroad along with Rotarian leaders, the release said.
Estimated cost for the trip is $2,600, “which includes airfare, high-speed bullet train, medical travel insurance and luggage.” Some scholarships are available.
The group will depart June 2020 from Oklahoma City, and touch down in Tokyo, the release said.
“They will see the sights, enjoy the people, feast on the cuisine and create lifelong friendships and memories,” the release said.
Prior to visiting Japan, the D5750 Rotarians will be hosting their Japanese hosts in Oklahoma, the release said.
“The Oklahoma Outbound Team will have the opportunity to meet and become friends with the Japanese Team while in Oklahoma and then see them again when visiting their country,” the release said.
