TO NATIVE AMERICAN YOUTH
TO INSPIRE READING, WRITING, AND HIGHER EDUCATION
The Young Native Writers Essay Contest is a writing contest
for Native American high school students and is designed to encourage
young Native Americans to write about their experiences as a member
of a Native American community and the culture that inspires them.
The voices that emerge from this program honor the legacy of every
Native American who has ever lived. Add your words to the thousands
submitted through this project - all writers receive a Certificate
of Honor for their submission.
The Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation's goal of promoting
education and creating new opportunities for youth has inspired
this essay contest. Partnering with Holland & Knight in this
endeavor are the National Museum of the American Indian and the
National Indian Education Association.
