Hispanic Latino Summit
The Hispanic/Latino Summit will be awarding ten $1000 leadership scholarship applicable for tuition, student fees, or room and board at an accredited community college, college or university to a High School Senior. Please submit application with the school’s “Gallery of Stars” nomination form.
At the Summit, we will recognize Nebraska Junior or Senior Hispanic/Latino students that have displayed strong leadership efforts. Students need to be nominated by school staff members. The student’s leadership role may be in the classroom, the community, and/or extracurricular activities, etc. Students that are selected will be recognized at the Summit in the Gallery of Stars booklet which will include the student’s nomination information and photograph. We also plan to have a Gallery of Stars slideshow playing during meals.
There will be a limit of 5 junior or senior nominations accepted per building. Please make sure the nominee is registered to attend the summit early so that they are able to attend.
The Hispanic/Latino Summit planning committee is requesting your assistance in nominating a junior or senior student that has shown strong leadership skills and has goals for educational success. The information submitted by school staff must adhere to local district FERPA policies since it will be published. Please complete one form per nominee.
