During Hispanic Heritage Month, Governor Ron DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis invite all Florida students to participate in the 2020 Hispanic Heritage Month art and essay contests with the theme of “Celebrating Untold Stories and Contributions of Hispanic Americans in Florida.” To ensure Florida students have an opportunity to participate, the deadline for all submissions has been extended to 5:00 pm Eastern Time on Thursday, October 15, 2020.
Students in grades K-3 have a chance to win a cash prize by submitting their original artwork, and students in grades 4-12 can earn a 4-year Florida Prepaid Scholarship through the essay contest. In addition, students, parents, teachers and principals are invited to nominate full-time educators in elementary, middle and high schools for the Hispanic Heritage Month Excellence in Education Award. The deadlines for the artwork, essay contest, and Excellence in Education Award are included in the extended deadline, due 5:00 pm Eastern Time on Thursday, October 15, 2020.
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated September 15-October 15, 2020, and is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about the countless contributions of Hispanic Americans in our state’s history. I hope your teachers will incorporate this theme in their lesson plans and instruction so all students have the chance to take full advantage of this opportunity to enhance their appreciation for Hispanic American History and prepare financially for their own future education aspirations.
Please share this information about the art, essay and educator contests with your parents, teachers and students. The prizes could transform the life of a student in your district.
