Two Eighth Graders Earn Chinese Writing Recognition
Ethan Chen Will Nury

Shady Side Academy Middle School eighth graders Ethan Chen and Will Nury had their original Chinese writing works selected for inclusion in the 2022 edition of Selection of American K-12 Outstanding Chinese Works by the Chinese Language Teachers Association USA (CLTA-USA).

Chen's piece, "Chinese Restaurant Review," and Nury's piece, "给笔友的一封信" ("A Letter to a Pen Pal"), were recognized in the Intermediate Mid level category of the writing competition. Both are students in Mandy Fong's eighth grade Chinese class.

The Selection of American K-12 Outstanding Chinese Works is an annual digital magazine dedicated to the publication of writing submitted by K-12 learners of Chinese as a foreign language for the purpose of promoting Chinese language and culture studies in North America. It provides a platform for learners to practice their craft as writers and to share their ideas, inspiration, and successes in their Chinese learning. The 2022 edition will be published online here.

Congratulations, Ethan and Will!
