On the evening of Dec. 16, the final of the 17th Mandarin Contest, hosted by the UJN Publicity Department of Party Committee, organized by UJN Broadcasting Station, was held in the auditorium to celebrate the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening-up. The judges of the contest were the host of Shandong TV Station, the instructor of Shandong Jianzhu University Broadcasting Station, the national mandarin tester and the provincial mandarin tester.
After preliminaries, rematches and trainings, a total of 10 player teams came to the final which began with a dance by the Art Troupe of the University of Jinan. The teams recited in turn their own works, some being magnificent poems, some being sentimental prose, and some being hymns to youth. They also took great pains with their costumes, some being in antique style, elegant and beautiful, and some being in the style of the past Republic of China (1912-1949), vibrant and vigorous. On the stage, they won several big rounds of applause for their impressive performance. The contest climaxed with the melodies of Goodwill of Breaking-up by Liang Shuang and Wu Hao, two of the UJN Top 10 Singers, and Song of Reciters by UJN’s all broadcasting station announcers.
