Carter Wins First Place in MTSU’s Chinese Language Writing Contest

Belmont sophomore Clarke Carter, international business major and Chinese minor, won the first place award in the Advanced Category at Middle Tennessee State University Confucius Institute’s Second Annual Chinese Language Writing Contest.  In the fall of 2014, Carter entered the contest by writing a Chinese essay called, “My Best Friend.”

The purpose of the contest is to promote interest in Chinese learning among American and Chinese American students, to offer a platform to present their Chinese writing skills and to increase their understanding of Chinese language and culture.

Under the guidance of Dr. Qingjun Li, assistant professor of Asian Studies and Chinese Language, Carter is the first Belmont student to win an award in Elementary Chinese Writing for Non-Heritage, Advanced Chinese Writing for Non-Heritage or Chinese Writing for Heritage Chinese learners.
