Young Native writers' contest

Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation announces third annual Young Native Writers' Essay ContestThe Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation announced the third annual Young Native Writers' Essay Contest. The contest focuses on the richness of American Indian life and history, and works closely with the Indian law practice group of Holland & Knight LLP.

The contest encourages young Native writers to explore their heritage in order to become positive forces in their communities, and is open to high school students from all tribes throughout the United States.

"We are pleased to give all Native American high school students throughout the United States the opportunity to participate in the contest this year, and we are inviting noted Native authors to join us in our effort," said Angela Ruth, executive director of Holland & Knight's Charitable Foundation. "We are grateful for the commitment of the National Museum of the American Indian in joining us to provide important opportunities to Native youth."
Comment:  I believe Holland & Knight earns much of its income from gaming tribes. Therefore, consider this another benefit of Indian gaming.
