Kyle Chu Wins 2010 Mr. Hyphen Contest

November 7, 2010

Congratulations to Kyle Chu, our new Mr. Hyphen for 2010. Kyle wins $1,000 for his cause, the Center for Asian American Media.

More details, photos and video to come. And, listen to Monday morning's Tell Me More show on NPR. Kyle and I will be guests discussing the Mr. Hyphen contest. Thanks to all our other contestants and everyone who came out to the show.


An evening of celebrating Mr. Hyphen fogged my memory, and in my haste post, I forgot to thank some people.

Much gratitude to our amazing emcee D'Lo, who was great.

Special thanks to our judges filmmaker Alice Wu (Saving Face), Center for Asian American Media chair Dipti Ghosh and Campbell, CA, Mayor Evan Low.

And the show wouldn't have been the same without designers Estrella TadeoCecilia Aragon and Jenn Lui of Intwined, whose clothes were showcased by the contestants.

Also, thanks to all the Hyphen staff members who made Mr. Hyphen happen, led by Dian Pan and Clay Ngo.

And, Kyle will be on Tell Me More on his own, telling his story.


Here's our recap of this year's Mr. Hyphen contest.

Here's Kyle's interview on NPR's Tell Me More.
