From the winners

 

Primary Category

Huang Yong Tang, Nan Hua Pri.

I've been learning Chinese Calligraphy for 3-4 years in school. I pick it up because I feel that it is a significant component of our culture. Hence when I practise it, I don't just learn the words, I am better acquainted with my culture too.

Secondary Category

Fu Xijin, Nan Hua Sec.

I practise Chinese Calligraphy since 6 years ago. My parents is my major source of inspiration as they are both very culturally inclined. The most important thing I learn most from Chinese Calligraphy is that whatever we do, we need to put in our 100%.

Tertiary Category

Xu Shi, Chinese High

I picked up Chinese Calligraphy 10 years ago, since I was in Primary School. It has been my hobby ever since. It helps me find inner peace.
