Xu Jing, April 17 (Xinhua) The year 2023 marks the 130th anniversary of the birth of Soong Ching Ling, one of the founders of People’s Republic of China (PRC) and honorary president of the country. The launching ceremony of the first "Progress Cup" Sun Yat-sen Soong Ching Ling Reading Marathon (hereinafter referred to as "Yuema") and the launching ceremony of the question bank were held in Shanghai on the 17th.
The contest was hosted by the Shanghai Sun Yat-sen Soong Ching Ling Cultural Relics Management Committee and the Shanghai Committee of the Communist Youth League, and co-hosted by the Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Former Residence Memorial Hall and Xuhui District Culture and Tourism Bureau.
In this competition, a series of related books, such as Soong Ching Ling, Sun Yat-sen and so on, were read by combining offline and offline, so as to attract a wide audience, including teenagers, to read the grand and magnificent life stories of two great men in the century and approach their three-dimensional and vivid spiritual world.
Soong Ching Ling is the daughter of Shanghai. Her "lovely home" is located in Xuhui, Shanghai, and most of the women’s and children’s cultural and educational undertakings she initiated in her life germinated, took root, flourished and expanded in Xuhui. The launching ceremony of this competition was held in Xujiahui Academy, one of Shanghai’s cultural landmarks. By setting up "Soong Ching Ling’s special bookcase" in this all-media era compound library and entering the hospital to scan the code, the reading was switched online and offline, showing the power of reading to the society and calling on the whole people to read.
On the same day, 150 contestants were divided into student group and adult group. They read the book Soong Ching Ling together in three divisions of Xujiahui Academy, and completed the online question bank and made a comparison within the specified time. After the launching ceremony, various organizations and individuals will continue this "Yue Ma" lasting for 100 days, calling on the whole people to intensively read famous works, enjoy reading, pool their wisdom and enrich their spiritual world.
Ni Yifei, director of the Cultural Management Committee of Sun Yat-sen Soong Ching Ling in Shanghai, said that in recent years, the Cultural Management Committee of Sun Yat-sen Soong Ching Ling in Shanghai has continued to promote the construction of a "great mission" platform with the theme of carrying forward the great spirit of Sun Yat-sen Soong Ching Ling, with the series of activities of "five tours" (tour exhibition, lecture, broadcast, competition and tour) as the starting point to provide quality public cultural services to the public. The first "Progress Cup" Sun Yat-sen Soong Ching Ling Reading Marathon is a touring brand planned and launched by the Cultural Management Committee of Sun Yat-sen Soong Ching Ling in Shanghai this year.
Wu Bin, deputy secretary of the Shanghai Communist Youth League Committee, said that the Shanghai Communist Youth League Committee will widely mobilize the youth of the city to actively participate. I believe that through this competition, the contestants will learn something and learn something. With the joint efforts of many parties, this competition will definitely become a high-quality platform for "innovating the use of red resources and boosting the growth of young people". (End)
