The Chun Group presents a unique opportunity for high-school students of Asian ancestry to showcase their creative writing abilities. Students, demonstrate your cultural heritage by entering this essay writing contest. Write an essay about being Asian-American, detailing how you overcome the challenges and the uniqueness defined by the character, traditions, appearance and aspirations. Consider how your life growing up in 2015 compares to your family members who first came to the U.S., how your family or cultural values helped you define your character, and how that moment in your family history compares to your experience growing up both Asian and American.
This contest is open to all students of Asian ancestry who are currently enrolled in a high school in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Union, Lincoln, Iredell, Catawba, Gaston (NC) or York (SC) county.
The Charlotte Asian Heritage Association's mission is to promote Asian heritage by planning, organizing and sponsoring traditional cultural events to enhance the visibility of Asian ethnic groups as an active and integral part of culturally vibrant community.
May 14, 2016 is the date of the next Charlotte Dragon Boat Festival Race and Asian Festival.
