The “Challenge Cup” competition was sponsored by the Central Committee of China Communist Youth League, China Association of Sciences, Ministry of Education and National Academic Association. Serving as a guide and model for the public, the nationwide event was known as the Olympic in science and technology for Chinese college students. Till now ten events of competition have been held successfully since 1989. During the recent years, with the ever-increasing emphasis on the events from college leaders at different levels and the support from units subordinated to our university, Xiangtan University Committee of the Communist Youth League actively aroused and elaborately organized our students to participate in the previous national/provincial competitions and made considerable achievements. Two great events-the 3rd “Challenge Cup” Provincial Competition in Hunan province, namely, the 6th National Competition of Chinese College Students’ Business Plan, and the 8th “Challenge Cup” National Competition of Chinese College Students’ Extracurricular Academic and Scientific Achievements-will be held next year. Therefore, our University Committee of the Communist Youth League will strengthen its work for greater achievements in aspects such as propaganda work, deployment of consulting teachers, selection of student members and subjects, and training courses, etc.
