Chinese Bridge Speech Contest

The Chinese Bridge Speech Contest and Scholarship program offers high school and undergraduate students the opportunity to travel to China.

Since 2006, OUCI has hosted the Oklahoma Regional Chinese Bridge Speech Contest in the spring of every year. Since its inception hundreds of students have competed in the contest.

In 2012, from November 12th through November 28th, commissioned by the Consulate General of P.R, China in Houston, the Confucius Institute at the University of Oklahoma recommended Alice Nan to take on the task of training and preparing the U.S Team 2 for the Fifth Chinese Bridge Chinese Proficiency Competition for foreign Secondary School Students in Kunming, China. U.S Team 2 won lst place and each individual team member won 2nd place!

In 2013 one high school student and one college student won the opportunity to travel to China to compete in the international contest.
