Celebración 2018

Celebración provides NHI the opportunity to showcase its work through 550-600 aspiring youth. It encourages a continued dialogue of issues that have importance to the future of Latino community life, gives a public face to the vision of NHI, and transmits a distinct modern-day image of Latinos as they prepare to craft the future of this hemisphere.

Approximately, 550-600 participants qualify from the summer Great Debates (9th Grade), LDZ (10th/11th Grade) and CWS (11th Grade). All of these students are award-winning recipients from each summer program, distinguishing them as the top 25% of the students who annually participate. The event includes

  • College Register Annual Meeting
  • Panel Discussion
  • College Register Discussion: Strategic Policy of Recruitment and Retention of Latinos at Institutions of Higher Education
  • Grand College Fair
