Go For Broke National Education Center (GFBNEC), a nonprofit organization that exists to preserve the legacy of Japanese American WWII veterans through education, is again sponsoring a Student Essay, Poetry, and Video Contest. The contest is open to high school students (grades 9-12) and college students (undergraduate and graduate). Cash prizes will be awarded to a total of sixteen winners: $1,000 (each) to the top six winners. Plus, the top thirty qualified winners will receive two complimentary tickets to attend the 15th Annual Evening of Aloha Gala Dinner this fall at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites in Los Angeles. At this gala dinner, the winners will be able to meet the Japanese American WWII veterans whom they researched about! They will also be treated to an Awards Brunch the following day.
