Students from Denny International Middle School and Chief Sealth International High School recently competed in the 2016 Washington Chinese Language and Talent Competition held at Chief Sealth.
The competition includes chess games, public speaking, drawing, Chinese singing, poetry and much more.
It's held every year by Cultural Exploration of Greater China (CE) and is open to students all over the Puget Sound area, but its humble beginnings started more than 10 years ago.
In 2000, a few parents of Chinese Americans got together to brainstorm how to bridge cultural gaps for young generations. As a result, CE was created, then began offering teachers in greater Seattle summer, educational trips to China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Years later, CE developed the language and talent competition which is open to all K-12 public and private schools, as well as students from Chinese heritage schools and home tutoring institutes.
