In the last few months, the Association of Chinese Arts and Literary Contest for Youth has made every effort to prepare and select materials for the 20th Contest. While the Contest was being launched and recital materials were being uploaded, new cases of coronavirus were diagnosed in Toronto, which has created pressure on students and parents to a drastic extent, affecting our communications with participating schools, students and their parents.
According to predictions, the peak of the coronavirus will come in the spring, which will coincide with the time of the competitions and award presentation ceremony.
In view of this, the Association of Chinese Arts and Literary Contest for Youth has decided to:
(1)Postpone the Contest Date to around mid-October 2020 (Please check our website for details later);
(2)Introduce a new competition format. (Entries for Essay Writing, Calligraphy and Painting will be submitted online or by mail.)
(3)Cancel the Poetry Recital category this year.
Many thanks for your understanding and support.
