The Chinese Language Star Chinese writing competition has been organised by the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Canberra to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Hanyu Qiao Chinese Bridge Chinese speaking competition.
There are two categories in this competition: 1) high school students (300 characters), and 2) university students and other Chinese language learners (500 characters).
The topic is to be chosen by the student and needs to relate to an aspect of the theme Chinese language, culture and ‘Hanyu Qiao’. The writing should express the student’s real feelings about the topic and should be factual rather than fictional.
The closing date for the preliminary round of the competition is July 3rd. A final round will be held, closing on July 7th. Those who make it through to the final round of the competition will be notified of the topic after July 3rd.
High school students’ entries must submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
University students and other Chinese language learners’ entries must be submitted to email@example.com.
Prizes include being given the title ‘Chinese Star’, being invited to participate in the 2012 Hanyu Qiao competition in Australia and being highly recommended for scholarships to study in China.
