Each university and region devises his competition plan by himself based on the basic items of the competition and submits it to the Championship organizers for approval and record. Those plans are considered as the important references of the topics and productions of the TV programs, which are supposed to involve such elements as Chinese history, geography and culture, etc. The top three teams will attain the qualifications for the subsequent Jouzhou ( the poetic name for China) competition.
