It is time again for the annual Chinese Writing Contest, which is open to all Queensland schools teaching Chinese.

Again this year, the Confucius Institute at the University of Queensland will sponsor two Supreme Awards: one each for the best overall entry from Sections I-IV and Sections V-VIII. This is in addition to the usual First, Second, and Third Prize for each Section.

The Writing Contest will be held between 3rd and 13th October 2017. As usual, there are eight Sections to cater for different year levels and students’ language background:

 

Non‑native Speakers

Native Speakers

VII

IV

VIII

Students who are native speakers of Mandarin or any Chinese dialect can only enter in the Native Speakers Sections. For fairness to the students who are non-native speakers of Chinese, please ensure that this rule is strictly adhered to. Any students who have studied until year 4 in a Chinese speaking country like mainland China or Taiwan should be categorized in the Native Speakers Sections.

The writing tasks for the Contest have been prepared by Chinese teachers in our School. Blank answer sheets are available here:

The best two entries for each Section from each School will be submitted for judging. If more than two are submitted, only two randomly selected entries will be assessed. 

All entries should be received by the School by Wednesday 25th October 2017.The final judging will be undertaken by a panel of three Chinese language teachers in this School.

All participating schools will be notified of the results by 10th November, 2017.
