The Essay Contest is open to school children from grades 6-12 in the Tampa Bay area. The topic of the essay will vary each year and will be related to Hispanic history or culture. The contest is divided into four categories, with three cash awards in each.
Cash awards are awarded to the first, second and third place winners in each of the categories. During the reception, awards are presented to the winning students.
Winners will be awarded at the Essay Contest Brunch Ceremony. They will be provided with free admission along with their teacher and one parent. Additional tickets can be purchased by clicking Purchase Tickets.
Everyone in the community is encouraged to attend to support this wonderful event. For more information, please send an email to Ms. Maribel Garrett, Essay Contest Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Rafael Fuentes, Essay Contest Co-Chair, at email@example.com.
