Rules and Guidelines

You’re invited to participate in the 2024 Sing With Me Chinese Music Video Competition in the United States!


The competition is open to elementary, middle, high school, and college students enrolled in formal Chinese language classes. All entries must be submitted by Chinese language teachers/instructors who serve as the guide and contact person of the team.


  • Showcase Students’ Learning Outcomes via Musical Performance: Inspire Chinese language learners in American K-12 schools and universities to demonstrate their Chinese language and artistic talents. 

  • Foster Creativity: By learning and recording Chinese music videos, learners can use artistic and technical tools and methods to express their creativity, feelings, voices, and ideas on select themes.

  •  Enrich Chinese Language Curriculum and Instruction: By incorporating music into the curriculum and instruction, Chinese language programs can expand content and deepen students’ learning experiences

Judging Criteria

A panel of Chinese language and music experts will serve as judges to select the national winners in each grade-band category.


  • Chinese language learners enrolled in a Chinese language program in an accredited public, charter, private, or parochial school in Grades K-12 or institutions of higher education may enter the contest. The Chinese language class can be in an immersion, dual language immersion, or world language setting. (Please note that weekend heritage language schools are excluded from this competition.)

  • There are three categories for Music Video competition. Teams must select one category to enter during registration:

   1. Grades K-5

   2. Grades 6-12

   3. Institutions of higher education

Note: The numbers of awards will be determined based on the numbers of entry under each category. For example, if the college has lower entries, the numbers of award will be lower than other categories accordingly.

  • We welcome students from diverse backgrounds (linguistic, cultural, racial, ethnic, LGBT, or exceptional ability) to participate in the contest. See details in Team Structure below.

  • Each school can have two entries, regardless of one or two different teachers. This encourages more entry from one school but allows for more open participation nationwide.

Team Structure

  • Team Coach/Contact Person: A full- or part-time Chinese language teacher contracted to teach a Chinese language class in the school/district. This person is responsible for registering, coaching, managing the team, and communicating with the project personnel. The team may have two coaches, but only one should serve as the main contact.

  • Team Members: A team may consist of one or more members, which includes Chinese language students and their schoolmates who love singing Chinese songs but are not currently taking Chinese during this academic year.  All participants must be students and their Chinese teachers.

       Deadline: 11:59 pm PT on or before February 29th, 2024
