Latino high school seniors are invited to apply for Hispanic Heritage Youth Awards grants.

The program promotes young leaders who demonstrate leadership in the classroom and community in an effort to encourage their peers to use education as a vehicle for success.

Educational grants are offered in several categories, ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. Students are also eligible to be selected as a national recipient and receive a laptop and an all-expenses-paid trip to the National Youth Awards ceremony.
