We are delighted to announce the Annual Chinese Language Awards Ceremony, which aims to celebrate the outstanding achievements of students in Chinese language learning. The event provides an opportunity to recognize the hard work and dedication of our students, highlighting their language skills and cultural knowledge. This exciting ceremony will be a fun and inspiring evening filled with speeches, performances, and awards, and we welcome parents, teachers, and friends to join us in celebrating our students' accomplishments.
All public, independent, and Catholic schools, as well as community schools in South Australia that offer Chinese as a language, are invited to participate in this awards night.

1. NOMINATION CRITERIA
Each school can nominate ONE primary and ONE secondary student who demonstrates high enthusiasm for Chinese studies and outstanding knowledge and understanding of Chinese culture. This includes but is not limited to knowledge of Chinese history, literature, art, and traditions. Students cannot be nominated twice. For example, if a student is nominated in a community school, they cannot be nominated in mainstream schools as well.
The Chinese Language Awards offers three categories for student nomination:
Second Language Learners of Chinese: The student must be a non-native learner studying Chinese as a second language and has Chinese language skills but is not necessarily the top academic student.
Background Language Learners of Chinese: The student may speak Mandarin at home, not necessarily exclusively, and have varying degrees of knowledge of and proficiency in the language being learned.
First Language Learners of Chinese: The student is a native Chinese language learner who has had more than one year's schooling in Mandarin in a country or area where Mandarin is spoken.
The Chinese Language Awards offers the following prizes:

Secondary School students: $50 Gift Card and Certificate of Excellence
Awards will be presented to nominated students who meet the criteria for each category.
