This is your invitation to apply for a very special experience. As a Sister City delegate, you will visit Tokyo and Misawa, and have the opportunity to learn about Japanese culture, be a part of the Misawa City parade and celebrations, visit with a host family, and represent the Wenatchee Valley during Misawa’s summer festival.
Applications for the 2021 delegation are now available. To apply as a delegate, download the appropriate application (student or adult). The applications are in PDF format. In order to open them, you must have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your system. The applications include fields that you can type into. Complete the forms using Acrobat Reader before printing and signing.
Each delegation is comprised of local dignitaries, Apple Blossom Festival Royalty, local business leaders, teachers, and student ambassadors. The delegation has traditionally spent 1-2 days touring Tokyo, and 5-6 days staying in Misawa with host families, attending the Misawa festival, and participating in numerous Misawa City functions.
The approximate cost is $2,000 per delegate. Applications are available on this page (see above) or by contacting LaVerne Bergstrom at (509) 884-3865.
Applications for student ambassadors are available to current 7th through 12th grade students from Wenatchee and East Wenatchee schools.
