Organised by the Communication University of China (CUC), the conference was directed by the Ministry of Education and the National Language Commission of the People’s Republic of China with the theme “Demonstration of the power of recitation in preserving history”. 291 universities from 33 provinces, autonomous regions, centrally administered municipalities, and special administrative regions submitted 654 works to the competition.
Two LU students were shortlisted in the national preliminary selection and then made it to the finals: Li Wenxin with “Jia Wen” and Pun Hok-lam, a second-year student of Department of History of the Faculty of Arts for the rendition of “Be a Fighter”. Apart from the CUC, LU was the only participating university whose entries all got through to the finals.

Dr Zhou Bo, the awardee of “Teaching Excellence Award”, said: “Previously, students majoring in broadcasting and hosting won most of the awards in this competition. LU students have benefited from the University’s commitment to enhancing students’ language proficiency and its ‘biliterate and trilingual’ policy. Both teachers and students profit more from educating students according to their aptitude, and from providing a vibrant campus life for everyone. These essential factors contribute to the breakthrough achieved by LU.”
