Student Scholarship Opportunity

Once again, Governor Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott have invited all Florida students to participate in the annual Hispanic Heritage Month art and essay contests, which will be centered around the theme, “A Celebration of Innovative Hispanic-American Leaders.” Students in grades K-3 have a chance to win a cash prize by submitting artwork, and students in grades 4-12 can earn a 4-YEAR FLORIDA PREPAID SCHOLARSHIP through the essay contest.

Additionally, 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.

All entries must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday, October 15, 2018.  Click here to learn more about Florida’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration and contests.
