1ST CHILDREN’S CALLIGRAPHY COMPETITION ORGANIZED
The Children’s Creative Center of Mongolia and the Cultural Exchange Society of Inner Mongolia are jointly organizing International Children’s Art Festival. The first event of the festival was a children’s calligraphy competition named “Mongolian Nations”, which was held at the Children’s Creative Center on August 7.
Mora than 180 calligraphy works by 70 Inner Mongolian and 35 Mongolian children were submitted for the competition.
G.Solongo and M.Jargalmaa won first place of the competition for their “Human, the Sky and the Earth”. Inner Mongolian Qao Bai came in second place for her “Eternal Mongolia”.
The children’s calligraphy works will be displayed to the public until August 20.
The competition was organized to promote traditional Mongolian script to young people and give the two countries’ children a chance to form lasting friendships. The organizers highlighted that many people have stopped using and are beginning to forget the traditional Mongolian script, which is why the festival was launched.
Participant of the competition Hu Jin of Inner Mongolia said, “I have been practicing calligraphy for five days. I am an eighth grader of the Mongolian School in Inner Mongolia. I came here with my two friends to compete in the festival.”
