Stop Wishing. Start Dreaming!
Save the Date
Are you a high school student wondering how to make college a priority – or perhaps why it’s even important? Maybe you’re interested in learning how to graduate career- or college-ready. Opportunities abound for one-of-a-kind, post-secondary experiences that are shaped to fit your personality, skills and attributes. This year’s Latino Youth Summit, sponsored in-part by the Latino American Commission, is one way you can learn more about opportunities available to you.
The Summit gives high school students an opportunity to hear from a variety of speakers who have overcome adversity to accomplish great things in their lives. Identify scholarship availability and other opportunities for continued education with a panel of speakers from more than five Nebraskan colleges. Let Latino leaders motivate you to embrace higher education. Tour area businesses and the local community college, and learn about STEM-related careers. You won’t want to miss this fantastic line-up of inspiring speakers and invaluable information.
Ten leadership scholarships totaling $1,000 each will be awarded at this year’s Summit. High school seniors or juniors who will graduate in May 2020, are representatives of the school's "Gallery of Stars" (limit of five students per school) and meet the eligibility criteria may apply. Scholarships will be applicable for tuition, fees, or books at an accredited community college, college or university. Deadline to apply is Oct. 2.
Gallery of the Stars
We will recognize Nebraska junior or senior Hispanic/Latino students at the Summit who have displayed strong leadership efforts and displays goals for educational success. Leadership roles can be those displayed in the classroom, the community and/or extracurricular activities. Selected students will be recognized in a Gallery of Stars booklet handed out at the event, as well as a slideshow played during meals.
A huge thank you to all sponsors who helped make this event – and the post-educational dreams of Nebraska’s Latino students – possible.
