The year 2018 marks the 10 year anniversary of NCA (Nebraska Chinese Association, a.k.a. OCCA – Omaha Chinese Culture Association). To appreciate the enthusiastic supports of our members and the community in the past 10 years, honor our generous donors and volunteers, solute the selfish contributions of our officers and event organizers, and to further promote the Chinese culture, heritage, and the prosperity of multi-cultural communities in Nebraska, the Board of Directors of NCA has decided to publish a “10 year Celebration Book of Nebraska Chinese Association.” The book will include articles, photos, and artworks to showcase the major NCA events of the last 10 years, to pay tributes to the history of Chinese in Nebraska, to applause our donors and volunteers, and to recognize our officers, members, friends, and families.
Articles, Photos, Snapshots, and Artworks (paintings, Calligraphies, etc.) relevant to NCA events and activities, Chinese language schools, dance and Taiji classes, etc., are sought from everybody in the community for inclusion in the 10 Year Book.
We also call for entries of Greeting Messages that can be either printed or handwritten texts (in Chinese or English) or artworks for the celebration of the 10 years of NCA, the promotion of Chinese culture and heritage in Nebraska, and any other forms appropriate for the book. The Greeting Message entries can be from individuals, families, and/or groups (e.g., WeChat Groups, Dance Classes, Music Classes, etc.). Greeting Messages, If not otherwise specified by the authors, will be printed in 1/2 or 1/4 page size for entries from groups and families, 1/8 page size for entries from individuals (the book will be printed in 8 3⁄8” x 10 7⁄8” page size), and depending on the amount of content. There will be no fee to be paid to your contributions, and no fee to be charged for printing your message in the book. We encourage everybody in the Chinese community of Nebraska actively participate in this Chinese culture promotional endeavor.
