LCCA Summer Talent Competition

To cel­e­brate the Chi­nese Cul­ture Week (Sept. 13 – 18, 2010), LCCA will host a Chil­dren Tal­ent Con­test.

When: Sept. 12, 2010 (Sun­day)
Where: Old Cul­ture Cen­ter at City Cam­pus, Lin­coln, NE
Who: All LCCA younger mem­bers and friends

It is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to expose your child’s tal­ent. All chil­dren aged from 6 to 14 are qual­i­fied for the com­pe­ti­tion. The con­test is divid­ed into two age groups: 6 – 9 and 10 – 14. The com­pe­ti­tion may include the fol­low­ing types of acts:

Vocal, Instru­men­tal, Dance, Paint­ing, Cal­lig­ra­phy, Mar­tial Art, Mag­ic, etc. Per­haps oth­er cat­e­gories. Some cat­e­go­ry such as Singing and Dance can be per­formed in solo or group.

There is only one require­ment for the acts. What ever the genre it may be, it must be relat­ed to Chi­nese cul­ture. Either the form or the sub­ject of the acts must have some­thing to do with Chi­nese cul­ture, e.g. singing a Chi­nese song, play­ing Chi­nese music, Chi­nese tra­di­tion­al art­work, and Chi­nese cal­lig­ra­phy.

Con­tes­tants will be judged by the pro­fes­sion­al spe­cial­ists or mas­ters of the respec­tive cat­e­go­ry. All win­ners of each cat­e­go­ry from each age group will receive prizes pro­vid­ed by the Uni­ver­si­ty of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Con­fu­cius Insti­tute and LCCA. The first place win­ner will be award­ed at the Chi­nese Cul­ture Week’s clos­ing par­ty on Sept. 18, 2010. Select­ed art­works of the win­ners of Paint­ing and Cal­lig­ra­phy will be exhib­it­ed with the mas­ters in Chi­nese arts at the Rotun­da Gallery in the Nebras­ka Union dur­ing the Chi­nese Cul­ture Week.
