THE YOUTH VOICES GALA:
Our $30,000 Youth Voices on China online video contest is the 1990 Institute’s signature education initiative to foster better global awareness among young Americans and inspire them to start thinking about U.S.-China relations.
Join CAAM and the Committee of 100 in welcoming these young, emerging media makers. Our festivities is a family affair and includes:
- An exclusive premiere of the finalists’ videos on what China means to them and their futures
- Find out who are our national middle school, high school and college winners
- Meet our star judges who will be presenting awards, including actress/filmmaker Joan Chen, Hollywood producer Teddy Zee, film director Alice Wu, former White House AAPI Director Ed Lee and celebrated journalist Ben Fong-Torres!
- Join us at our RECEPTION at Pa’Ina Restaurant for some Hawaiian delectables (separate tickets required).
- At the Pa’ina, enjoy some mingling and learn who our Regional Winners and other special award winners are!
With China’s growing global impact, learning about modern China is more important than ever to help Americans develop balanced views on U.S.-China affairs. The Youth Voices contest is just one of the 1990 Institute’s programs that enable young people to attain the skills, values and multicultural agility they need to solve global challenges.
Founded by prominent San Francisco Bay Area leaders in education and business, the 1990 Institute’s mission is to broaden trust and understanding between the people of the U.S. and China. Learn more at www.1990institute.org
