Growing Up Asian In America

Growing Up Asian in America, a signature program of the Asian Pacific Fund, is one of the largest celebrations of Asian heritage in America. It serves as a community resource, helping people of all backgrounds better understand the experiences of young Asian Americans and learn more about life in a place as diverse as the San Francisco Bay Area.

Growing Up Asian in America provides a unique forum for youth to explore their ideas and to celebrate being both Asian and American.

Every year, around 1,000 Bay Area students in grades kindergarten through 12 submit artwork, essays, poems - and now video - on a specific theme, and compete for $20,000 in prizes. Finalists win $1,000 cash awards and other prizes, and are honored at an awards ceremony at the Asian Art Museum. Special exhibits displaying the winning art work and essays go on tour during Asian Pacific Heritage Month, and travel throughout the year to museums, city halls, and public libraries all over the Bay Area. Winning entries are also featured on our website.
