Write an essay, win a cash prize

To provide students an opportunity for self-expression and stimulate creative thought, the Chinese American Citizens Alliance will hold a National Essay Contest at Northeast Seattle Library, located at 6801 35th Ave. N.E., on Saturday, March 1, from 9 a.m. to noon. The contest is geared toward educating students on the cultural heritage and the contributions of Chinese Americans, and to promote better understanding of cultural diversity and improve racial harmony among the many diverse groups in this country.

The contest is open to all high school students, who will have two hours to write an essay in English. The essay is not to exceed 500 words on a contemporary subject regarding Chinese/Asian Americans in the United States. The specific essay topic will be announced at the time of the contest. Writing supplies will be provided.

Prizes range from $100 to $1,000. (end)
