Hispanics for School Choice holds piñata drawing competition for K-12th graders
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, Hispanics for School Choice is organizing a drawing competition for all students in the state.
If you're a student from kindergarten to 12th grade and you like to draw, this is a competition for you.
The theme this year is "La Piñata" -- piñatas are always fun.
Drawings must be on an 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
The deadline is Thursday, Oct. 15, and you have to mail it to the Office of Hispanics for School Choice in Brookfield.
There will be one grand prize winner in four age categories.
Organizers say it gives kids the opportunity to showcase the Hispanic culture.
"La Pinata, I think, transcends the boundaries and limits," said Tammy Olivas, director of Hispanics for School Choice. "A piñata, for our Hispanic countries, is a way to express celebration. It's happiness. It always involves a party and gathering of people. So what better way to bring a little bit of light and happiness into an otherwise kind of a very tumultuous year that we've had."
The winners of the drawing contest win a tablet.
