Community News: 美国《侨报》第二届少年儿童中文写作大赛

由美国《侨报》、《侨报周末》主办的第二届少年儿童中文写作大赛将2013年9月1日正式启动,10月31日截稿。贵校在中文教育传播中起到重要作用,诚邀贵校参与。大赛旨在激发美国少年儿童学习中文的积极性,检验他们在过去的中文学习中的成果,鼓励青少年朋友更加努力学好中文,为华夏文化的传播增光添彩。报名细则点击这里

此次大赛分为纽约州、新泽西州、宾州、大华府地区、麻省、伊利诺伊州六大赛区,覆盖了美东地区主要华人聚居区。比赛由长期从事华文写作及教育工作的资深评委对参赛作文进行评定,分儿童、少儿、少年三个年龄组评选出各个赛区的初赛优胜作品,再通过第二轮决赛及现场考评, 决出三个组别的一、二、三等奖及优胜奖得主。总决赛的优胜者将获颁奖品、奖杯、奖状,他们还将获得参加“2014年美国《侨报》小记者俱乐部”甄选资格。

去年由《侨报》主办的第一届美东地区少儿中文写作大赛得到了致力于促进海外华文事业发展的各界侨胞们的热情鼓励和大力支持。
各地中文学校选送和个人参赛选手发出的近2000篇作品参赛,26家中文学校参与了协办,规模空前,影响深远。参赛的许多作文立意新颖、感情真挚、语言流畅优美,得到了评委的高度评价。今年6月,由首届少儿中文写作大赛获奖选手组成的“2013《侨报》小记者俱乐部”正式成立,并于7月1日至15日组团参访中国北京和福建,现场采访中国外交部、美国驻华大使馆、国务院侨办、福建日报、东南网等机构并与当地小记者进行广泛交流。侨报小记者访华团的中国之行成为大陆主要媒体竞相报道的重要新闻,美东侨报网也也在大洋彼岸实时直播了小记者们每日精彩的见闻。小记者们通过自己的眼睛和文字,鲜活地记录了此次中国行的“外交日”、“新闻日”、“回家日”和“人文之旅”。《侨报》总编辑郑衣德先生表示,这样的
中国,是很少有人能够亲历的,更鲜有媒体进行过这样的报道。此次中国行让小记者们拥有了连正式记者都少能享受到的特权,是一次难得的人生经历。预期,今年将会有更多的优秀小记者们从第二届中文写作比赛中脱颖而出。

欢迎报名,有任何问题都联系蔡励婷(Eva Cai):evacai@chinapress.net,谢谢!
