Several Tillicum students participated in the 2019 Washington State Chinese Language and Talent Competition, including 13 students from the BMDL Chinese dual language program.  The competition offers students with diverse backgrounds a venue to come together and share their knowledge of Chinese culture and Chinese learning experiences.  Our students demonstrated their skills in public speaking, singing, drawing, dancing, and martial arts.  Athena Shanklin sang the song “Yellow 流星” and placed 2nd in Chinese Singing, and Charlotte Middleton and Mingni Fu placed 2nd in the Talent Show category with their ribbon dance “飛天 Fei Tian (Flying Angels).”
