A total of 28 awards were presented to secondary school students at the awards ceremony of The Story of Jao Tsung-i Field Project Competition, which was held at the Jao Tsung-I Academy today (6 August). The Competition was jointly organised for the first time by the Jao Tsung-I Petite Ecole of The University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Baptist University Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology and The Jao Link.
The Competition received submissions from various genres, including videos, musical compositions, paintings and pieces of creative writing.
