I am Tibetan – a competition to promote and preserve the unique language and culture of Tibet, in collaboration with Tibet Foundation
This is a competition for the children in the community. It came about from as a result of a generous donation from Tibet Foundation in recognition of the community’s efforts in preserving our language and culture. They have donated £600 and we have organised the competition to best achieve the objectives and further promote the preservation of our unique language and culture. The competition will be split into three categories, Speaking, Singing and Dranyen. Speaking and Singing will be sub-divided into one group for ages 8 and under and another for over 8s. Dranyen is open to all children. There will be a winner and two runners up in each part of the competition with prizes as follows;
Runner up 1 £30
Runner up 2 £20
