As a noted historic and cultural city， Shanghai attracts millions of tourists from home and abroad with its unique charm. Shanghai is also a cherished paradise for gourmets， boasting thousands of restaurants serving a complete list of well-known Chinese and international cuisine.
As China is now in an age of further development and transition， the Chinese people naturally long for the beauty that reflects the tenor of the times. With this in mind， Nanjing， the capital of Jiangsu Province， sponsored a city-wide contest for model youth of contemporary times.//
There were two purposes for the contest. One was to encourage young people to be courteous， lively and graceful and well-mannered. The other was to recruit candidates for assignments in the fields of management， international trade and foreign affairs and thus support the city's reform and opening drive.
