Each year, AYC encourages students to use art as a means to share their artistic vision about the Lunar New Year. All five winners were awarded special recognition and monetary incentives ranging from $50 to $150. Their artwork will be on display at AYC’s May L. To Educational Center. Over 30 entries were received this year and one first place winner, two second place winners and two third place winners were selected. All entries were judged on four criteria: originality; creativity; design; and incorporation of theme.
The Asian Youth Center (AYC) was founded in 1989 by the Asian Task Force of the United Way of Greater Los Angeles, which had identified serious and unmet social service needs among Asian youth and families in the San Gabriel Valley. Today, AYC is an independent 501(c)(3) community-based non- profit organization (EIN 33-0383691) that has expanded its scope and services to serve both Asian and non-Asian youth and families in Los Angeles County California.
LA18 is proud to be a long-term sponsor of the Asian Youth Center.
