Thank You for Attending the 2021 Annual Awards Ceremony + Congratulations to all of our 2021 Awards Winners!

Thank you for joining us for a fun evening of celebration on June 6th, 2021 at the 2021 Annual Awards Ceremony! We congratulate and thank all of our 2021 Award Winners for their outstanding work in support of leaning Chinese language and culture.

Thank you everyone for participating in the 2021 “Why Learn Chinese” Competition! We have received 455 submissions around the Washington State. We are absolutely thrilled with the overwhelming response and quality of submissions. You created an entry that was well-crafted and engaging, which made the selection process incredibly difficult for our team and the judging panel.

We look forward to seeing your participation again in 2022.  In the meantime, we are delighted to introduce a student-focused Theme Search Contest in the fall semester to determine our 2022 WLC Competition theme. Students can submit a theme to serve as the inspiration for competition participants and their original works. Please check back for updates.
