Poster Contest Open to K–12 Students
As part of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the Asian Pacific American Student Achievement Action Group (APASAAG) is co-sponsoring a poster contest for K–12 students.
The contest calls on students to create a piece of original art that demonstrates acts of courage by Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Acts of courage can be notable historic/current events or stories around you. Examples include Wong Kim Ark vs. U.S., an Asian American serving in World War II, speaking against racism or providing medical relief to the sick during the COVID-19 pandemic.
First, second and third place winners will each receive cash awards at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
Submissions are due Sunday, April 18.
Along with APASAAG, the contest is being co-sponsored by the Chinese American Parents Association of Montgomery County, the Calvin Li Memorial Foundation, the Chinese Culture and Community Service Center, the Lead for Future Academy and the Association of Vietnamese Americans.
