Apollo Student Competed in Midwest Chinese Speech Contest

Reuben Henry WageniusCongratulations to Apollo's Reuben Henry Wagenius (9th grade) who participated in the 2022 Midwest Chinese Speech Contest with his speech about Minnesota cultural foods, and a recitation of the Red-Crested Crane (a Chinese poem). On May 6, finalists were invited to compete in a knowledge quiz and interview, and Wagenius won first place in his level! His achievement was possible because he was coached well by former 742 teachers Maria Li Wang and Hsingi Michelle Chan, and proudly supported by current Apollo teacher Qiong Huang and North teacher Hongyou Ying.
