David Burnett put Madison on his back this Saturday at the 16th Annual Midwest regional chinese speech contest. He’s a first year student at UW-Madison in third year Chinese who had a drive to win on his home turf.
The speech contest had over 60 participants coming from over 15 different universities. Students competed according to speaking ability and heritage status. A trip to China was awarded to the top two speakers in the Non-heritage Advanced High group. Nine UW-Madison students competed in the contest.
