Hispanic Heritage Essay Contest

Write an Essay

This Hispanic Heritage Month, we are asking students to think about those who are making connections in their communities. It could be your local barber, a teacher in your school, a famous musician or a political advocate.

In 500 words or less, choose a person (or group) of Hispanic heritage who have kept their community connected to one another, to their culture, or to those outside their community, and explain how. It could
even be you!
