How have your cultural views changed in today's globalized society?
The 2016 East Meets West International Essay Competition seeks to provide an intellectual and creative forum that empowers young voices and broadens the dialogue on cultural awareness and exchange. The competition is open to all high school and college students. The Grand Prize is a $1000 cash award. Subsequent Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards in $300, $200, $100 amounts will be awarded to students in High School and College Divisions. Additional non-cash awards are also given by our partners and sponsors.
