I. Introduction

Arizon School is delighted to offer competitions for all students. These competitions are designed for the purpose of allowing our students to gain valuable experiences through the process of competitions. Education and competition are intimately related. Competition inspires students to learn how to do their best not just good enough. When students compete, they will become more inquisitive, research independently and learn to work with others. Furthermore, children who engage in competition will earn critical social skills through interacting with other children, while also learning the value of hard work and developing self- esteem and self- efficacy. Therefore, we, Arizon School want our students to develop their skills and have a strong foundation for their abilities through competitions.
