Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI), in partnership with NBC Bay Area, is accepting entries for its annual Growing Up Asian in America (GUAA) art, essay, and video contest that reaches thousands of Bay Area students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. 

Founded by Lance Lew of NBC Bay Area in 1995, the contest provides a unique platform for young artists to creatively explore and celebrate being both Asian or Pacific Islander and American. Ten students will be selected for a cash award and a chance to appear on NBC Bay Area! 

Today, with so many influences coming from friends, family and social media it can be hard to determine your own beliefs, values and opinions or what it really means to be YOU.  This year’s contest wants to explore what it means to be free to be your true self.  This means having a sense of strength and pride in being who you are.  For some, this could be eating your favorite food that others might not like, being honest in your opinions, having a unique appearance or a non-traditional family.  The first step in being free to be you is finding an environment where you feel safe to do so.  Please reflect and share what “Free To Be Me” means to you and how you can create space for yourself and others to feel safe to be themselves.
