Enter Legacy Washington contest


October 19, 2017

Washington students in grades 6-12 have until the end of November to take part in a contest sponsored by the Office of Secretary of State’s Legacy Washington program.

Legacy Washington’s Korea 65 contest encourages students to explore the question of how the Korean War affects Washington state today. Entries can be submitted as writings, film projects or two-dimensional art. The contest ends November 30.

The contest is in connection with Legacy Washington’s Korea 65 project, which includes an exhibit and a series of online profiles about Washingtonians who experienced the Korean War in different ways, including U.S. soldiers who fought in the war, a nurse who worked in a MASH unit, Korean Americans who grew up in Korea during or after the war, and others.

Judges will announce winners in 2018 from grades 6-8 and grades 9-12. Winners will be invited to a ceremony in the Secretary of State’s office where they will be presented with a special certificate and gift card. Winning pieces also will be posted on the Secretary of State’s website, featured in SOS publications and appear alongside the Korea 65 exhibit.

For more information about the contest, contact Legacy Washington’s Laura Mott at or 360-902-4171 or visit .

Legacy Washington documents extraordinary stories in the state’s history. This collaborative venture, spearheaded by Secretary of State Kim Wyman, relies on original sources at the Washington State Library, Washington State Library and heritage organizations across the state. Legacy Washington’s work can be found in libraries across the U.S. and in heritage organizations and schools statewide.
