2012 Chinese Bridge Competition Completed at USF
March 30, 2012

Another Chinese Bridge Competition for high school and college students was hosted by the USF Confucius Institute on March 23rd, 2012. The first place winners are Tina Danh (a second year student at USF) for the college group, and Hannah Clode (a junior at Pine View School) for the high school group. They will represent the Florida students to compete with students from southeastern United Stated at the regional competition in Houston on April 22, Sunday.

This year’s participants are more representative than last year. We had 6 students from two colleges and 12 students from 6 high schools across Florida (some from Fort Lauderdale). The second place winners are Misty Sirine (USF) and Jenny Wheeler (American Heritage School). The third place winners are Tasneem Dawoodjee (USF) and Robert Appel (University School of NSU). The other students also performed well. We owe gratitude to all the teachers and parents who have helped these students.
