Each year CTEF organizes an art contest to raise awareness of the status of China's rural education, and encourage people to appreciate and contribute to the local community.

Our 12th annual event's theme is "What Can I Do For Others". 

A smile, a show of appreciation, volunteering, be kind, … there are many ways we can do for others and make this a better world, especially after the last couple of rough years for many. Show us what you could and would do for others!
