4.29 essay contest

Young people! The Korean American Coalition and Elite Educational Institute invite you to participate in the 4.29 Center Essay Contest, an opportunity for a generation of young Americans to gain deeper insight into the Los Angeles Riots of 1992. Your essay could win you the grand prize of $1000. Here are some more details about the contest:
The essay contest is open to high school and college students. Three First Place prizes of $300 and three Runner-Up prizes of $150 will be awarded in addition to the $1000 Grand Prize.

To participate in the Contest, interview a Korean American who experienced the 1992 L.A. Riots first-hand, and share your opinion of how this event may have impacted the Korean American community, the African American community and the Latino community in L.A. How has the Korean American community changed as a result of the Riots, and what changes, if any, should be made in cultural relations between various ethnic communities?
The deadline to submit your essay is April 12. To download the contest submissions sheet, and for further information, including contest rules and guidelines, go to the Korean American Coalition website here.
