In order to answer the call that everyone should cultivate the good habits of diligence and frugality, the Work-Study Department of the School of Electronics and Information Engineering (SEIE) held a hand-made competition on November 25th on the Octagonal Building of SEIE. Present as the judges were the counselor of the freshmen Han Wensi and three sophomores from the Work-Study Department of SEIE.

 

The competition drew its curtain at 18:20 as scheduled, which required participants’ products shall be available waste. According to the statistics, 42 individuals and groups signed up for the competition. Nevertheless, it turned out to be a pity that only about 30 of them turned up at the venue. After the host put a welcome mat to everyone present and introduced the evaluation standards, individual participants showed their product one by one. What caught judges’ eye was a handwork similar to a soccer ball. From the words of its producer, it was made of plastic bottles with excellent stability due to the unique structure. Moreover, it could be used as a saving pot or a penholder because it was hollow.

 

Then came the turn of group shows. There were more brilliant products, delicate houses with small trees and flowers, dummy flowers bonsai, and so on. It was worth mentioning a simple projector made by two roommates, which was made of a useless box and two broken magnifying glasses. It was a practice in theory according to the optical imaging principle. When the lights were turned down, it surprised everyone that the video played on the phone was successfully thrown on the wall, which made other participants burst out applause. Then the host announced the winners’ list.

“The competition was of great value. For those who were absent from the competition, I wanna say you have lost a precious chance to show yourselves. Meanwhile, I want to send my sincere congrats to those winners on their fantastic handworks. Frankly speaking, I was amazed by your products, of which were not only artistic but also functional. You turned the valueless into the priceless. As the saying goes, rubbish is misplaced resources. It just depends on how you manage it. All of you have made it.” The counselor Han Wensi said.

 

After the judges awarded the certificates to the winners and took photos together, the competition brought its curtain down perfectly with cheers.
