Students of SCUT were awarded one of the two first prizes at the 7th Recitation Contest for International Students, a nationwide artistic competition that was held in SCUT last week.
The event was launched by the China Scholarship Council and was this year hosted by SCUT’s School of International Education, with Qiu Xueqing, SCUT’s Vice President attending and addressing the opening ceremony.
Taking “Attaining in China” as this year’s theme, the contest was designed for international students to display and deepen their acquaintance with China’s growing path and the great achievements that country has made in the last four decades of economic reform.
Qiu Xueqing, in his remarks, said that the year 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of China’s economic reform, throughout which international students have witnessed every little change in China, as well as the transformation of China and the world that was brought by reform and opening-up.
As a stage to express these feelings, the contest attracted international students from 12 major universities across the country to gather and share their stories of studying in China with various artistic forms such as poets, proses, rap talks, or stage plays.
Growing and Attaining, a stage show performed by five students of SCUT, and A Russian Heart, A Chinese Dream, presented by ZheJiang University, were the two First Prize winners.
The event, apart from strengthening communication and connection among international students, was a concrete reflection on China’s profound development in the last four decades, and a platform for international students to better understand China in an elaborate way.
