Call for Entries: ROAR Korean-American Story Slam

Tell us your story!

The Council of Korean Americans and KoreanAmericanStory.Org invite you to enter the inaugural ROAR Story Slam: Celebrating Korean-American Voices for the chance to present at a national gathering of Korean Americans and win a cash award. The entry deadline is Monday, Sept. 12, 2016.

We seek personal, true stories that reflect a Korean-American experience. Videotaped submissions will be screened by a judging committee, who will invite the five most enthralling entrants to present and compete at CKA’s National Summit on Saturday, October 15, 2016, at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington D.C.

Live judging will determine the winners of the first-place ($3,000), second-place ($1,000) and third-place ($500) awards. Finalists will be given complimentary tickets to the CKA gala and awards dinner on Friday, October 14th, and the CKA National Summit on Saturday, October 15th. Transportation and lodging expenses will be subsidized for finalists who need financial support to participate.
