The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO) continues to sponsor the 19th “Hong Kong Cup – Calligraphy, Painting and Colouring Competitions” (Hong Kong Cup competitions) organised by the Association of Chinese Arts and Literacy Contest for Youth.
The competitions are part of the “19th Chinese Arts and Literacy Contest for Youth” organised by the Association, with an aim to arouse interest in knowing and understanding more about Hong Kong among school children of different ages. A new category, "Colouring Competition" has been added to the Contest since last year to cater for junior and senior kindergarten students. The Hong Kong Cup competitions are popular among students in the Greater Toronto Area and “Basic Law” was adopted as the theme for this year’s competitions. The Association received an overwhelming response of about 3 000 entries this year and many of them are very creative and impressive.
Adjudication of the different categories of the Hong Kong Cup competitions was concluded today (May 11). Members of the adjudication panel comprise representatives of the HKETO and alumni associations of nine Hong Kong universities in eastern Canada, including Mr Kun-tin Lee of The Hong Kong Baptist University Alumni Association of Ontario, Ms Susanna Ko of The Chinese University of Hong Kong Alumni Association (Ontario), Mr Stephen Yip of Chu Hai University Alumni Association of East Canada, Mr Wai Wu of Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Eastern Canada) Association, Mr Laurence Lai of Lingnan Alumni Association of Toronto, Mr John Lai of Hong Kong Shue Yan University Canada Alumni Association, Mr Dennis Au-yeung of the Hong Kong University Alumni Association of Ontario, Ms Gisele Suen of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Alumni Association of Ontario, and Mr Ray To of the City University of Hong Kong.
