2) Mind: Delight Memory & Cognitive Training Centre is willing to collaborate with different Calligraphy teaches to host Calligraphy classes to the elders after the workshops. As they also believe Chinese Calligraphy brings positive impact to the elders with Dementia.
3) We receive 2 thank you letters from 2 participants’ parent showing the gratitude and appreciation to JCI Kowloon for hosting the competition for the last 10 years, and allow their kids to be recognition and show positive change.

- Further involve past awardees in future activities to be strong sense of belonging to this long-term project
- Collaborate with accredited officials to host mass subsidized calligraphy classes to benefit those potential young calligraphers
