2 ABOUT THE PROGRAM NOMINATIONS DUE BY: FEBRUARY 14, 2014 DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION ONLINE AT: The (HSRP) is an effort by the Latin American Community Center (LACC) to recognize and acknowledge exceptional Hispanic students in both middle and high school in the state of Delaware. The program has been a signature event since 1979 and maintains strong school, community and private sector support. The goal of the program is to open doors for Hispanic students to pursue greater opportunities, inspire pride in our people and our heritage, motivate students to work hard and motivate their families to support them. All nominees attending the awards ceremony will be recognized and honored with a commemorative medal. All award recipients will receive a special award medal and a cash prize. In addition to these prizes, the outstanding students of the year will receive a special plaque. ELIGIBILITY Hispanic middle and high school students from any public or private school can apply for achievement awards. Nominees must be Delaware residents (i.e., primary residence must have a Delaware address). Nominees must be of Hispanic origin, defined as those persons who have at least one parent of Hispanic/ Latino heritage. INSTRUCTIONS FOR NOMINATIONS Nominations do NOT have to come from teachers; we accept nominations from teachers, coaches, family, community organizations, employers, mentors and any adults familiar with the student. A successful nomination packet requires the completion of two parts: PART 1: A successful application features a deep, strong and personal narrative advocating for the student s selection. A well crafted narrative is as specific as possible, provides actual examples of student s academic achievements, awards and certificates, extracurricular activities, community service, personal qualities and character, and highlight the nominee s creativity or talent, demonstrated leadership abilities and articulates the personal barriers overcome by the student.
