 Wakefield Student Places Third in Chinese Language Competition
Wakefield High School senior Anthony Box placed third in the Chinese Bridge Speech Contest at the Confucius Institute at the University of Massachusetts-Boston earlier this month.

A total of 175 contestants from New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Rhode Island, Wisconsin and Connecticut participated in this year’s contest. The speech contest, in its 11th year, was organized by Confucius Institute of Hanban.

There were three groups of contestants: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Box competed in the advanced group. Each contestant gave a three-to four-minute speech and then answered unprepared question from judges.

As the third place winner, Box will participate in the China Bridge Summer camp for two weeks in Shanghai or Nanjing.
