The Society of Professional Journalists 2009 NW Excellence in Journalism Contest awards banquet was held at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue.
For the 400-plus audience members at the Meydenbauer Center, it was a day for a young woman to showcase her high school senior graduation project — a variety show, which cost more than $10,000 to produce.
For years, a community watched a young girl grow up on stage. Seventeen-year-old classical Chinese dancer Leah Li often leaves her audiences in awe with her graceful movements and captivating smile. Now, she has decided to try her hand at producing.
This year, the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) awarded former Northwest Asian Weekly (NWAW) Editor Eleanor Lee for her excellent writing in Northwest Asian Weekly’s editorial section. Lee placed third in the opinion category and received her award on May 30 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue.
Sparkles and smiles gleamed at the Greater Seattle Chinese Chamber of Commerce 52nd Anniversary of the Scholarship for Women pageant. The event was held this past Saturday, July 11, at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue.
