2013 Confucius Institute Poster Design Competition


 

In November 2012, the Confucius Institute challenged all high schools which participate in our Hanban Chinese Teacher Program, to enter the 2013 Chinese Poster Design Competition. The aim was to spawn creativity among Kentucky high schools, and provide a creative way to express their "Knowledge of China (中国)." There were over 100 posters submitted by the students at the local schools. The Confucius Institute provided Visa gift cards in the amount of $50 for all 1st place winners and $20 for all 2nd place winners at each school. We are pleased to announce the following winners:

 

Superintendents High Schools 1st Place 2nd Place
Tim Murley - Warren County South Warren Anne Keaton Summer Shepherd
  Greenwood Amber Johnson Brittany Thomas

The Confucius Institute invited the WKU campus community to get involved, by opening up a voting poll, in which they assisted the CI with determining the "Grand Prize Winner." The "Grand Prize Winner" has received a CI scholarship, which is an all expenses paid trip to China this summer to attend the 2013 Confucius Institute Chinese Bridge Program. The Chinese Bridge Program is the CI's annual program specifically designed for high school students to travel to China, for a two-week excursion to various provinces. Typically, participants are responsible for paying for their own airfare, visa-processing fee, and WKU International Health Insurance, which totals an estimated $2,336, with all expenses paid while in China (spending money excluded). So, after 780 votes being cast, the "Grand Prize Winner" of the 2013 Chinese Poster Design Competition and 2013 Confucius Institute Chinese Bridge Sponsorship is:

• Ms. Amber Johnson – Greenwood High School (Chinese Teacher – Ms. Shana Ma)
