Growing Up Asian in America
2019 CONTEST THEME: MY CONTRIBUTION TO AMERICA
Entry Deadline: Friday, March 15, 2019
Asian Americans have had a historical part in shaping our country from the building of the transcontinental railroad 150 years ago to demanding for ethnic studies in schools 50 years ago. To celebrate these events, we invite you to share what you would contribute or add to our country.
Use the questions below to help spark ideas. You do not have to answer any of the questions as long as your entry is about your contribution to America as an Asian or Pacific Islander.
- (K-5 only): What would you create to make the country better?
- What rules or laws would you make or change for the country?
- How would you make a difference? What do you want to be remembered for?
- Why do you think your idea(s) or other students’ ideas are important for the future of the country?
- What part (if any) does being Asian American play in your contribution?
