MID-FEBRUARY DIGEST HIGHLIGHTS
1) ECAASU Trailblazer Award: Do you know a student who is paving the way for activism and advocacy in the Asian Pacific American community?
The ECAASU National Board is soliciting nominations for students who inspire, educate and empower those interested in Asian American & Pacific Islander American issues. As a new initiative to honor those who whose work fits with our mission and goals, ECAASU has created the ECAASU Trailblazer Award to recognize those students who have significantly impacted his or her community. Every two weeks leading up to the ECAASU 2012 Student Conference at Duke University, a Trailblazer Award nominee will be chosen by the ECAASU National Board as a finalist. At the ECAASU 2012 Conference, all the finalists will be recognized at a reception and the winner for ECAASU's Trailblazer Award will be chosen. The winner of the Trailblazer Award will be recognized at the reception and win a $500 scholarship to further his or her education or career aspirations.
Students must be nominated by their peers, co-workers or supervisors. For more information or to nominate a student, click here. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Nicole Fink, Advocacy Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
