Dear Principals of Westchester Chinese Schools,
It is my great pleasure to write to you on behalf of WACA – the Westchester Association of Chinese Americans, to call for your nomination of candidates from your school for “WACA Outstanding Student Leadership and Community Service (OSLCS) Award” for 2017 – 2018 school year.
WACA has offered the OSLCS Award to Chinese American students in the Westchester area since 2009. With enthusiastic participation from all local Chinese schools, the award program has served its mission and purpose very successfully. Every year, three outstanding students have been selected as recipients of the award; these students have gone on to elite universities including Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Harvard, MIT, NYU Stern, Penn, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale.
Please find attached two documents, “WACA OSLCS Award Program” and “WACA OSLCS Award Application Form,” which help explain the program’s purpose and procedures in more detail. The deadline for nomination of your school students is October 20, 2017.
I want to thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter. Besides Chinese New Year celebration and other traditional holiday observances, OSLCS Award Program is another core service offered by WACA to the Westchester community. We appreciate your active participation and support. By working together we can prepare our students for the future and make our community a better place to live in.
Li Pan, VP-Event Planning
