  • Since its establishment, the Committee of the 6th International Youth Culture Arts
    Festival has encouraged arts in Chinese youth. Separated into four different artistic categories, the Festival Final Contest illustrates the diversity of talent in China’s youth, ranging from 6-13 years of age. With eighty contestants the Festival Final Contest looks to be an exciting event. I applaud the commitment of the Committee of the 6th International Youth Culture Arts Festival
    that looks to help New York grow and flourish as an institution of expression and excellence. Charles Schumer’s Letter
