The National Chinese Language and Culture Coalition (NCLCC) is announcing its upcoming National Campaign Slogan Contest!
Organized by Chinese Language Association of Secondary-elementary Schools (CLASS), Chinese Schools Association in the United States (CSAUS), National Council of Associations of Chinese Language Schools (NCACLS), and facilitated by the National East Asian Languages Resource Center (NEALRC), the National Chinese Language and Culture Coalition (NCLCC) strives to improve the ability of young Americans to communicate in Chinese language and culture in order to strengthen the competitiveness of the United States and contribute to global harmony.
This NCLCC Slogan Contest is open to students of its three national organizations to create Slogans that highlight the multifaceted benefits of learning Chinese in today’s K-12 STEMM curriculum in the United States. In addition to the major 21st Century STEMM projects in the Chinese speaking world, there were countless discoveries and innovations in the field of Science, Technology, Engineer, Mathematics and Medicine throughout thousands of years of Chinese history. Students are encouraged to reflect Chinese specific STEMM discoveries and relate them to the study of STEMM curriculum across the globe and create a slogan that clearly articulates the importance of knowing about the Chinese experience past and present!
