The national writing contest focuses on the richness of Native American life and history, and chal- lenges youth to speak out on issues important to their trib- al communities. For 2011, students who par- ticipate will be asked to write on the following topic: "De- scribe a crucial issue con- fronting your tribal commu- nity today. Explain how you hope to help your tribal com- munity respond to this chal- lenge and improve its future." The contest is designed to encourage young Native American writers to explore their heritage while becom- ing positive forces in their communities. It is open to high school students from all tribes throughout the United States. The Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation part- ners with the Smithsonian's National Museum of the family and then himself. The foundation developed the con- test with the hope that the Red Lake community would find healing by promoting its rich culture and traditions. "Indian Country has come a long way in recent years, but has such a long way to go," said Ben Nighthorse Camp- bell, a former U.S. Senator and current senior policy ad- visor with Holland & Knight. "The key to bringing an end to 60 and 70 percent unem- ployment, drug and alcohol addiction, high teen pregnan- cy and suicide rates, is not through government pro- grams. We must inspire the hearts and minds of our young people to be the change in Indian Country. I applaud the Young Native Writers Contest for providing an av- enue of inspiration for our young leaders." e last hoorah!

Regional+ 9 0 0 Previous week 2 0 The number of earthquakes declined substantially from the previous week, falling by nearly half and posting the fewest in six months. Not since the first week of May has earthquake activity fall- en to single-digit levels. The intensity of seismicity also waned as no activity registered M 2.0 or stron- ger. It has been five months since a week passed and no M Z activity occurred. Activity continued northwest of Lassen Peak in the Latour State Park, this week producing another four small tremors. Two measured as large as M 1.8. The Las- sen Volcanic Center has shifted around over the last three million years and the older known center is in the Latour area. Volcanic rocks there are between 3.5 and 2.5 million years old. They are just the remnant roots of a once vigorous volcano. The other volcanic centers are: Yunna (2.5-3.1), Ditmar (1.4-2.3 my), Maidu (0.8-22 my), and of course, the current Lassen Volcanic Center. - A quake measuring M 1.9 occurred north of Portola at Lake Davis.
