The final round of the 'Me and My Chinese Dream' Oratorical Competition was held by the women's federation of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province on October 22, 2013, in conjunction with the upcoming 11th National Women's Congress.

A total of 15 contestants from 13 cities and counties within the province competed in the final round. The contestants were women working in various fields, including journalism, nursing, education, publishing and so on. Each of them gave a speech about their dreams and their interpretation of the 'Chinese Dream'.

An audience of nearly 230 viewers and more than ten news media representatives attended the final round.

The 'Chinese Dream', put forth by Chinese President Xi Jinping, refers to the aim of building a moderately prosperous society and realizing national rejuvenation.

The phrase went viral online overnight after Xi used it to describe the "great renewal" of the Chinese nation.

The Heilongjiang Women's Federation has launched various events to provide local people with platforms to express their own dreams. In June 2013, Deputy Inspector of Heilongjiang Women's Federation Bai Jinchan led a team of women's federation officials to visit over 100 grassroots women as part of the 'Me and Chinese Dream' public education campaign, in accordance with the requirements of the All-China Women's Federation.

The team talked to laid-off workers, empty nesters, college students, entrepreneurs, office workers, special education teachers, community workers, and migrant workers about their hopes and aspirations.

The 11th National Women's Congress will open in Beijing on October 28, 2013. The congress will deliberate and approve a work report by the 10th Executive Council of the ACWF, amend the federation's constitution and elect its new executive council members, according to a statement by the ACWF.

The ACWF said the congress will also summarize progress made by Chinese women in boosting social and economic development over the past five years and draw up a blueprint for the development of Chinese women in the next five years.

A total of 1,510 formal delegates and 156 specially invited delegates will attend the congress. The number represents an increase of 230 people over the number of delegates at the last congress held in 2008.
