May 20th, the Star of Outlook competition (Jiangsu Province competition area), was held in Biguiyuan Hotel in Jurong. 38 competitors were selected out to chase for the 10 seats to the National Competition in July. Two of our students, Lan Wang and Jie Jiang, represented Nanjing and attended the competition.
The competition totally had 3 rounds. The first round was talent show. Both Wang and Jiang love sports very much, so they decided to show their talents in sport. Wang is a member of basketball team of our college. She showed the three-step layup skill and said she learnt team spirit from basketball. Jiang, who had been trained in badminton for 5 years, showed 2 different ways of badminton service. She told the story of how badminton gave her confidence, which impressed judges a lot.
When it came to Round 2, Wang and Jiang cooperated to guess words tacitly and won applause from audience. In Round 3, they were asked to give an impromptu speech each. Wang’s topic was about changes in transport and Jiang’s was about whether university education should adapt to future career. They responded quickly and logically. Therefore, they won very high scores in this round and widened the gap between them and other competitors.
Eventually, both Wang and Jiang were the top 10 competitors and got the opportunity to attend the National Competition in Beijing this summer. Let’s wish them good luck.
