Why Learn Chinese Competition
“Why Learn Chinese Competition” is a written/visual submission-based competition. Students all over Washington can enter for a chance to win prizes up to $200 by creatively answering the prompts:
6th-12th “When American Dream Meets Chinese Dream…”
K-5th “A famous Chinese Person Who Has Influenced you”
Who? Middle and high school students are welcome to submit entries to creatively address the question of “When the American Dream Meets the Chinese Dream”. What does the American dream mean to you? Do you know the Chinese dream? How can both dreams come true? What our young generation can do to improve a more positive US-China relationship? Why learn Chinese?
In order to encourage young learners, WAACE also provides a particular prompt of “Describe a Famous Chinese Person Who Has Influenced You” to K-5 students. All entries are evaluated with the same criteria.

A written entry: an essay (450-600 words), poem (8+ stanzas) or
A video entry: a song, speech or another creative format (2- 5 minutes) When? Online submissions until July 31 , 2016.
