Utah: This past April 17th almost 700 junior high and high school students from more than 25 secondary schools descended on the Tanner building at BYU to participate in Chinese language and cultural activities such as calligraphy, Chinese chess, Martial Arts, Lion Dance, Bingo, Karaoke, and a photo booth. All students and volunteers were asked to speak only in Chinese during the activities, and a mock “jail” with “police” was set up for violators who used English! This was all in fun, and students were released from jail after answering a few questions in Chinese.
Students also participated in competitions including poetry recitation, interview, skit/drama, singing group, and a Confucius Institute speech contest and others designed Chinese art projects, which were displayed on the third floor. All students earned points to go towards their school total and three high schools and three middle schools received trophies:
|Middle Schools:||High Schools:|
|First Place||Lehi Jr. High||Hillcrest High School|
|Second Place||Midvale Jr. High||Lehi High School|
|Third Place||Monticello Jr. High||Orem High School|
Congratulations to all the students who participated in the Chinese Language Fair.
We especially want to thank the many volunteers from the community and BYU who participated as volunteers and judges.
