Contest invites students to share their vision of China

The Arizona State University Confucius Institute and School of International Letters and Cultures invite Arizona students to participate in two contests: poster design and photography.

The poster design contest is open to students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The purpose is for students to creatively express their knowledge of China.

The posters should illustrate one of three themes: people of China, landscapes of China or holiday celebrations of China.

Entries will be judged in three categories: kindergarten through second grade; third through fifth grades; and sixth through eighth grades.

The posters must be 11-by-17 inches and hand-created by the student artist. Any medium or mixed-media may be used.

The photo contest, for students in middle school through college, is themed “The China in Your Eyes.” Students may enter photos in four categories: people and customs; architecture and landscape; arts, calligraphy, painting or decorations; holidays, celebrations and entertainment.

Entries must be 8-by-10 inches and original artwork made between May 1, 2011 and Sept. 1, 2012.

All entries are due Sept. 3. The winning posters and photos will be displayed during the Mid-Autumn and National Day Celebration Sunday, Sept. 23, in the Arizona Ballroom, Memorial Union, Tempe campus.
