What’s been quiet during COVID? Not the DAMES Korean program! Please find below a brief snapshot of our students’ incredible achievements over these past couple of years, evidence of their hard work and determination in the face of global crisis.
- Celilia Lin (Yuchen Lin), who was in Dongsoo Bang’s KOR 204 (Intermediate Korean II) class, received the “Korean Culture Award” at the Online Korean Speech Contest hosted by the Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles on October 9, 2020.
- Yanjun Shen (Eunji Lee’s KOR 102 class) received the 1st prize (non-heritage Level 1) at the 4th Southeastern US Korean Speech and Quiz Contest on April 10, 2021.
- Tessa Mannell (Dongsoo Bang’s KOR 204 class) was placed 3rd (non-heritage level 2) at the 4th Southeastern US Korean Speech and Quiz Contest on April 10, 2021. (A note: Prizes were only given up to 2nd place in the non-heritage level 2, so Tessa’s name was not included in the list of awardees.)
The Online Korean Speech Contest was a nationwide contest and the participants at the 4th Southeastern US Korean Speech and Quiz were college students from universities in the Southeast (e.g., Duke, Vanderbilt, UGA, Emory, U of Kentucky, etc.).
Congratulations to these awesome students!
