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 10th annual event is a stamp design competition with the theme "Days@Home". 

How do you spend your days at home? So many days, what do you miss? What have your learned? Please share with us these special moments in life.


Each year selected artworks will be presented in an art album.  Award winning works will be printed as stamps and appreciation cards used in CTEF’s official communication with donors. This is a special year for us: every participant will receive the digital art album.    Due to the unpredictability of the Covid19 situation, we will grant award winning students a very special award. They will be honored sponsors for our 1+1 student sponsorship program and recognized on our official website.  CTEF will provide the funding for these sponsored students in China.


First prize:   The winner will sponsor one student per division.

Second prize: All winners will sponsor one student per division.

Third prize: All winners will sponsor one student per division.

(* The award plan might be adjusted based on the status of 2020  1+1 scholarship,  and CTEF reserves the right to make changes deem necessary *)

The entry must be an original piece of art that relates to the theme.  Deadline Dec 10th, 2020.  One submission for each participant. All finalists must submit their original upon requests. We may use the originals as proof of authenticity and for CTEF-authorized fund-raising events.

Art has no boundary, and neither does love.  A piece of art, a little appreciation, a little love, goes a long way.
