Students taking Chinese at Notre Dame this semester entered a national poster contest sponsored by CLASS (Chinese Language Association of Secondary-Elementary Schools) in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Month. The contest theme was “Chinese and Me 中文和我”, and each school was allowed to submit five entries. All students in Jiani Liao's Chinese 1-3 classes participated, drawing posters based on their experiences in learning Chinese and Chinese culture. The five submitted posters that were voted on by students. Notre Dame's entries earned two silver awards, a bronze award and two honorable mentions.
"This means a lot to me," shared Jiani. "Our students LOVE art, especially drawing. It's great to see them combine their understanding of Chinese language and culture and art skills in a creative way, and their skills were acknowledged nationally."
