Latinitas' Mother's Day Essay Contest
Monday, May 20, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (MDT)
The Día de las Madres essay contest is focused on inspiring Latina teens 13-19 in El Paso to write essays commending their mothers for their love and capturing the inspiration their mothers give their families all year long. Entries should highlight why your mother or motherly figure is special to you.
“We all have things we’ve always wanted to tell our mothers - or someone who has been “just like a mom” in our life - and this contest invites girls to share those feelings through writing and art,” said Veronica Barragan, contest coordinator.
“We created the Día de las Madres contest to give people a meaningful way to share their own words of admiration about their Mami,” added Alicia Rascon, co-founder of Latinitas.
Latinitas invites visitors to submit their work at MyLatinitas.com or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions should be between 250 to 500 words.
The selected submissions will be featured on the LatinitasMagazine.org website.
In addition, the top winner will
receive a complimentary mother and daughter photo shoot and
photograph, a spa package for mom, as well as a prize basket. Winners will be announced online just in time for Mother’s Day
Latinitas in a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering young Hispanic girls through media and communications.
