The Diversity Makes a Difference scholarship program 2008 celebrates young people who are committed to reaching out across cultural lines. This newspaper believes that diversity is an asset to our community, and so we encourage young people to take action to instill this belief in others.
This year, the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation will award five winners with $1,000 scholarships, with finalists receiving $200 each.
Winners will be announced at the Diversity Makes a Difference awards banquet on March 28 at 6 p.m. at Jumbo Chinese Restaurant in South Seattle.
For tickets to the event or to learn about sponsorship opportunities, call 206-223-0623.
Northwest Asian Weekly, Seattle Chinese Post and the Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation sponsor programs year-round which serve Asian youth.
