Four new Confucius Classrooms were unveiled, and the Confucius Institute honored outstanding students who had participated in programs to help increase their knowledge of Chinese culture.
Each teacher and school administrator received recognition for their achievements in promoting Chinese education. Students cheered as their schools were represented on stage. Later, it was the students turn to wow the audience. Each class had prepared a performance to show off what they had learned about China and their knowledge of the Chinese language. The groups sang, danced, and performed skits, which were truly the highlight of the event.
