Title: Chinese Bridge Competition 2018
Date: Fri. Mar 23, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

The Chinese Bridge Competition is an annual event where Florida college and high school students compete for Chinese language competence and cultural talent. The competition is designed for non-heritage speakers of Mandarin Chinese (Chinese is not spoken at home); therefore, heritage speakers are not eligible. The winner in each group moves on the next round for the regional competition in late April at UT Dallas. (The finalists from the regional competition will go to China for the International Chinese Bridge Competition during the summer. Travel costs for regional and international competitions will be covered by the sponsor: Confucius Institute Headquarters.)

Interested students should apply through their Chinese language teachers, so they can receive the necessary mentoring before the competition. Please note that the deadline to submit completed application form is Monday March 12, 2018. There is no cost for participation, and lunch will be provided to participants and their mentor teacher.

If your Chinese teacher does not have the application form, please request one by e-mailing us at or downloading it HERE.
