Facilitators and Judges are Needed.  Please view this information to see how you can get involved.

Background: More than 10 years ago a few parents of Chinese Americans brainstormed on how to bridge cultural gaps for young generations. As the result, CE was born in 2000 and started offering Greater Seattle area teachers a 2-weeks long summer trip each year to China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Today we are happy to announce our fourth annual Washington State Chinese Language and Talent Competition. All K-12 students in this state from public and private schools as well as students from Chinese heritage schools and home tutoring institutes are welcome to participate. We hope this event will provide a venue where students with diverse cultural background can come together to share their knowledge and experience.

The objectives of the competition are as follows:
  • To acknowledge and reward student and teacher achievements.
  • To help inspire further interests in the teaching and learning of Chinese language and culture.
  • To provide a positive venue for students with diverse background to come together to share knowledge and learning experience.

Awards 奖励:
All contestants will receive a gift for their participation in the competition. Awards and scholarships (Cash prize of $50 for individuals, and $100 for team competitions) will be given to the top three performers in each category, division and class. The awards ceremony will be held on the same day as the competition, beginning at 2:00 pm in the Chief Sealth International High School’s auditorium.

Below is an announcement from the event planning committee (CE Announcement 2016):
