Every year around October, many Asian countries celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival or the Moon Festival. Families gather to sample autumn harvests, light lanterns, and admire what's believed to be the fullest moon of the year. This holiday is second only to the Chinese New Year.
This year, ESD’s eighth-grade Chinese class students participated in the Confucius Classroom Coordination Office (CCCO) Mid-Autumn Festival Arts competition, as part of the International Leadership of Texas Global. Out of over 80 submissions from local Confucius Classrooms, Tatum ’25 won Third Place in the Middle School Artwork competition!
Tatum’s work features many important symbols of Chinese culture, such as the crescent moon, Chinese figures, and a moon rabbit, a popular symbol of the festival. Tatum was presented with her trophy and certificate during middle school lunch last week. Great work, Tatum!
