Omaha - University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) student Steven Bills is a first-prize winner in the University of Iowa's Japanese Essay Contest. Bills will attend the contest's awards ceremony in Iowa City, Iowa, on March 26.
"I'm very pleased because Steven competed against those who major in Japanese," said Reiko Take-Loukota, an instructor of Japanese in UNO International Studies and Programs (IS & P). "He has been a great student, and this recognition is well deserved."
