My group’s plan is to create a spinning lantern instead of choosing much simpler shapes like butterflies, fish and stars. As a matter of fact, our idea is to design a lantern which splits around when a candle is placed inside, which Symbolizes the seasonal spinning of the earth around the sun. Therefore, it will be a bit tricky and time-consuming to make it work.
We will have to cut the colored plastic papers and draw some exotic pictures to decorate the exterior of the lantern. Then we have to cut them out neatly, glue and stick them onto the shining outer surface of the spinning lantern. We will also have to strategize and position the axis so that it spins properly. AH this is to be finished within 3 hours.
This craft competition has a really special meaning for me and my team. It’s our opportunity to test our artistic abilities as all of US are going to major in arts later on. If we win this competition, we can prove ourselves to our families so that they would accept our career path later on. I’m really looking forward to the contest and hope that we would achieve the best results.

What do you think of the current competition program?
To my mind, game shows featuring contests are mushrooming on the media. Their nature is quite questionable to me as most of these competitions are previously scheduled and expected to go according to a certain set plan as to draw the attention of the audience. As a consequence, the results of such contests are not to be trusted and the whole game can be a scheme simply made to trick the vulnerable public.
Why competition programs are so popular?
Game shows are all the rage on TVs for the time being. Such programmes tend to, be hosted by celebrated comedians to hook viewers and boost ratings! The competition “Challenge the comedians” in which a candidate tries to Intake the panel of judges laugh out loud with a funny performance or play is considered as a typical programme that Registers millions of views on Youtube.
Who do you think will take part in the competition?
As far as I’m concerned, those working in the entertainment industry are often the main and frequent participants in competitions! The reason behind this is that those figures are often muscular, good-looking and charismatic Enough to, draw’ the attention of the public. The chances for ordinary’ people to join a competition are quite slim and if there is any, the competition won’t appeal to many people.
Do people need competitive spirits at work?
A competitive mind is equivalent to the increase in work productivity simply because when a staff member s motivated and have a sense of rivalry, he will try to outsmart their colleagues by working extra hours, packing his brains to come up with better ideas and get their tasks done in a timely manner. This in turn will make others follow suit and the obvious result is the increased work output.
