Minoru Yasui Student Contest 2020 Winners Announcement

Thank you to the students who participated in this year's contest! Winners will be announced on Monday, May 25 on the Minoru Yasui Legacy website.

Righting a Wrong! Min Yasui and Redress!

Create your own Museum Exhibit or Presentation

Prompt: Reflecting on Minoru Yasui’s legacy during the Japanese American redress and reparations movement, create an action plan for a civil rights violation that our country should redress today (to apologize for, to set right).

Redress: [noun] the setting right of what is wrong. [verb] to correct or remedy.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Bill of Rights states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” U.S. Const. Amend. I (emphasis added)


COVID-19 Update: Students may still submit an exhibit, but slide show presentations will also be accepted. Students may still collaborate on teams if they can do so safely while practicing social distancing.
