2014 Kentucky K-12 Level Chinese Proficiency Competition is Coming

We are very excited about our upcoming Kentucky Elementary, Middle, and High School level Chinese language competitions. The events will take place Saturday May 24, 2014 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the Auditorium of The William T. Young Library, University of Kentucky. Lexington, KY 40506.

The Conference of Economic and Political Inequality

We know that Social Stimulus Do-Gooders, like yourself, are aware that we are all important pieces of a larger community.  Communities thrive when every voice has the opportunity to be heard, but there are many obstacles holding back voices that are vital and often go unheard.

This free and open to the public conference is an opportunity to expand our horizons and understand ways to break down the walls of economic and political inequality that stifle those voices which are integral to the health of our community.  Don't miss out!
