looking for the next mr. hyphen

Awwww yeah. It's that time of year again. Hyphen is searching for a few good men for the 3rd Annual Mr. Hyphen Contest, happening October 4 in Oakland's Chinatown. The contest is an opportunity to celebrate the men of the Asian American community who devote their efforts to worthy community organizations. Yes, they are giving the underrated Asian male his due celebration.

If you are the man, or you know the man, who represents an Asian American nonprofit and is worthy of the Mr. Hyphen crown, then it's time to step out into the spotlight and compete. Contestants will strut their stuff in fashion, talent, and a rousing Q&A—all in the name of winning a donation to their chosen 501(c)3 organization. The grand prize is $1,000.

The event is not only a fundraiser for Hyphen (a not-for-profit organization too), but also for the organizations the contestants represent. The deadline to apply is September 1. It's all going down on October 4 at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. For more information about the competition, go here.
