Congratulations to two of our CLIP students, 7th grader Lyria Zhu and 4th grader Ray Zhu.  Both Lyria and Ray went to Beijing this summer to compete in two national contests.  
One contest is the 4th Huayun Cup National Mandarin Speech Contest. Lyria's solo speech ‘Rain of Osmanthus Flowers (桂花雨)’ won 1st place - champion of all international groups which includes competitors from six countries.
The other contest is the 13th National Youth Talent TV show, and both Lyria and Ray were members in a group performance (dancing, speech, and magic combo show).  Ray and Lyria gave speeches in Chinese.   The group was granted the  'Gold Award' by the referee committee.
Qing Zhu, Ray and Lyria's father, says, "We are so grateful that Meyerholz, Miller and CLIP has been providing excellent bilingual education and resources for Ray and Lyria! And we so proud to be part of this community!"
Congrats to Ray and Lyria! We're proud of you!
