Aside from the exciting performances, the most distinct feature of this year’s party is that all the publicity designs and stage settings were made by IIIS students, including the cute logo, the joyous stage backboard, the refined program and the amusing poster, which demonstrates the versatility of the students.
The shaking-stage Quantum Style was finally voted as the best performance this year and won the “Best Show Award” given by Prof. Yao. With the warm group photo, may everyone happy and smiling as always; may IIIS get better and better; may every dream set sail from here, flying higher and higher.
