2009 Growing Up Asian in America Arts & Essay Contest

asian_pacific_fundEvery year, the Asian Pacific Fund sponsors a “Growing Up Asian in American” arts & essay contest for San Francisco Bay Area’s K-12 students. This year’s theme — which is not surprising when you think about it — is change:

“Change: If you could change one thing to make the world a better place, what would that be?”

Students compete in three grade categories: kindergarten through fifth grade, sixth through eighth grade and ninth through twelfth grade. The first place winners in each category will receive savings bond awards in the amount of $2,000, with second and third places receiving $1,500 and $1,000, respectively. Numerous honorable mention honors are also awarded gift merchandise. Check out the website for more details or download the contest guidelines and entry form here (.pdf). But hurry fast since the deadline for submission is March 5th.
