Growing Up Asian in America provides a unique platform for young people to creatively explore and celebrate being both Asian or Pacific Islander and American.
Congratulations to our 2018 GUAA contest winners!
Every year, more than 600 Bay Area students from Kindergarten through 12th grades submit artwork, essays and videos on a single theme, with 20 Best in Class winners receiving a $500 award. This year's theme, My Hope for the Future, celebrates the 40th anniversary of Asian Pacific American (APA) Heritage month. The program was started in 1995 as one of the largest youth celebrations of APA Heritage Month in the nation. It encourages young Asian Americans to take pride in their identities, and helps others understand the varied experiences of our youth growing up in the Bay Area’s diverse communities.
