• 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青年观察项目按照绝对标准评判制进行评奖。

     

    作品的获奖与否,取决于作品本身质量的高低,而非选手之间的相对比较。

    只要选手的作品足够好即可获得奖项,若选手作品质量不高,则奖项会空缺。

     

    青年观察项目奖项共分成Superior, Excellent, Honorable Mention三个等级:

     

    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)

     

    所有青年观察奖的获奖作品将被收录进本年度项目获奖作品集。本届青年观察项目共有队伍342支。因版面所限,本页面只公布Superior及Excellent队伍名单,其余奖项和成绩请在系统中查看。

    青年影响奖

    青年影响奖为项目特别奖项。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

    The COVID-19 pandemic has exerted enormous pressure on our society and forced a host of changes to how we live and work. But those pressures have ebbed and flowed with the outbreak’s progress. The pandemic issues we read about this year focus on the changes in people's lifestyles and the continuous impact in the aftermath of the epidemic around the world. Some of our adaptations have accelerated already existing trends and will become a more permanent part of the post-pandemic' s "new normal".
