Minnesota-China Connection is your first-class ticket for a whirlwind educational trip to China – without leaving home.

Seven “Student Ambassadors” traveled with Governor Tim Pawlenty on a historic trade mission to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong November 11 through November 19, 2005. These high school seniors brought you the sights, sounds and their discoveries in China every day through journals, photos and videos. Upon their return to Minnesota, they each filed a “wrap-up” journal, summarizing their experiences, thoughts, and feelings after their busy week in China.

They also sent a daily vote and mystery photo from China
