My name is Beau Mueller, and I am a former Miyazaki JET (2009-2011) from Hawaii.
I am writing you to let you know about a writing contest for former, current and prospective JETs. Details are here. First prize is $150!
Along with my wife (also a JET – Kyoto 2002-2004), I have recently started JETProgram.ME, a multi-faceted community geared towards prospective, current, and JET alums. The site has many features, including JET classifieds, a non-snarky forum, the ability to create and join groups and more. Our goal is to make the site the go-to resource and hangout for people in all stages of the JET process.
