Hispanic Heritage Month Art and Essay Contests

Hispanic Heritage Month Art and Essay Contests

Governor Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott have announced the 2018 Hispanic Heritage Month contests for students and educators. Florida K-12 students are invited to participate in the essay and art contests. Parents, students, teachers and principals are also invited to nominate full-time, outstanding educators for the Hispanic Heritage Month Excellence in Education Award.

The theme for this year’s essay and art contests is “A Celebration of Innovative Hispanic-American Leaders.” Students are asked to share how Hispanic Floridians have impacted our state’s history and culture. The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2018.

Earning one of these scholarships could transform the life of a student, giving them an opportunity to enhance their appreciation for Hispanic American history and prepare financially for their own future education aspirations. Please encourage the educators in your district to let students know about this wonderful opportunity.
