The George Washington University Jiangsu Cup Chinese Speech Contest is the premier Chinese language speech competition for the Greater Washington D.C. higher education community, annually welcoming student competitors from universities and colleges throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
Since the Jiangsu Cup’s inception in 2011, almost 250 student participants have competed for scholarships and exchange opportunities in China, including full- and partial-scholarships to study the Chinese language at Nanjing University and fully-funded tours of the beautiful Jiangsu Province.
More than simply a competition, the Jiangsu Cup is a unique international educational experience and cultural networking platform for both students and Chinese language and cultural faculty from their respective universities. The event allows teachers to explore other schools’ Chinese language pedagogy and programs while sharing research and observations with their peers. For students, the Jiangsu Cup presents an extraordinary forum to engage with fellow Chinese language and culture enthusiasts and broaden their global scholarship.
Each year the competition continues to grow to include more D.C.-area universities and colleges and offer more cultural and educational opportunities for scholars and students who recognize the value of foreign language education in our 21stcentury society.
