• Story-telling

    故事思维可以打动人心 --《哈佛商业评论》

     

    故事思维即为Story-telling

    海外本科申请,是一个申请者向学校讲述自己的故事过程

    如何展现自己的优势?如何与学校的要求匹配?......

    回答好这些命题不仅需要学生的基础能力

    更需要他们知道如何利用自身特点讲述一个打动人心的故事

     

    在YOC

    选手通过学习并撰写调查报道,练就“如何用英文讲一个故事”的能力

    "在参加YOC之前,我的托福写作是26分。YOC结束了之后,我托福考到30,SAT写作考到878。

    另外,我们学校从高二有很多学术性报告写作。有了曾经的YOC打底,比起其他同学,我当时没有那种很慌的感觉。"

    ---朱嘉蒙,YOC参赛选手,2019-2020学年ED阶段获得西北大学录取

  • YOC奖项说明

    青年观察奖

    YOC青年观察竞赛按照绝对标准评判制进行评奖。

     

    参赛作品的获奖与否,取决于作品本身质量的高低,而非参赛选手之间的相对比较。

    只要参赛选手的作品足够好即可获得奖项,若选手作品质量不高,则比赛奖项会空缺。

     

    比赛奖项共分成Superior, Excellent, Honorable Mention3个等级:

     

    Superior Award 最佳青年观察奖(85分及以上)

    Excellent Award 卓越青年观察奖(75分及以上)

    Honorable Mention Award 优秀青年观察奖(60分及以上)

    青年影响奖

    青年影响奖为大赛特别奖项。评委会根据作品选题意义等,选出后期具有延伸及较高报道价值、对青年群体有一定意义的作品。虽然部分作品仍待进步,但希望小组能够继续深入自己的选题并进一步完善调研成果。

    该奖项评奖与青年观察奖独立进行,可同时授予。

  • 版面说明

    每年YOC都会收到大量不同主题的深度调查报告,选题的全面性已经成为了YOC青年观察竞赛的突出特点。因此,为了让参赛团队在更为一致的维度参与评审,当届评委会依照内容主题划分专题组,即版面。版面分类也将有助于记录当年的时事、热点与发展趋势。
