The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders recently announced the launch of its “What’s Your Story?” video challenge:
The challenge aims to explore the personal stories of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) across the country who have impacted their community through their dreams, experiences, and dedication to a cause.
Tell us how your unique experiences have shaped who you are today. Are you a passionate advocate of green and health initiatives for nail salons? Have you made a difference in your community through work with immigrant integration programs? Are you part of a movement that paves the way for AAPIs in the arts? Respond to our launch video below with a video under 3-minutes about your own experience and community leadership. You may also submit an essay under 1,000 words to address these questions.
Videos will be accepted in any form: including music video, PSA, short film, video blog, and interview. Essays will also be accepted where video production may not be possible. Submissions must be creative, innovative, and inspiring and should be submitted here by November 1st.
The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders will post a select number of entrees on the White House website.
In addition, “winners” will be invited to showcase their video at the White House this fall as special guests of a White House Initiative event.
