Contest Spotlight: ‘Paying It Forward’ in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month

Are you passionate about helping your community? Know someone who is? If so, check out Google’s annual Pay It Forward contest!

In honor of Hispanic Heritage month, the Google Staffing Programs team has worked closely with the Hispanic Googler Network to recognize leaders in education who are advancing opportunities for their local communities.

Students (high school or college, 14 and older), educators (teachers, administrators, school staff), and education-focused organization leaders (non-profit, private) are invited to tell us how they have positively impacted and influenced Hispanic communities within the U.S. We’re seeking leaders whose work in education demonstrates a commitment to expanding access and opportunities for the Hispanic community.

The deadline to enter the contest is October 3rd, 2016 at 11:59pm PT.

Submissions will be judged by a team of Googlers, who will be assessing the innovation, scale and the short- and  long-term effects of your impact. Contest winners will have the opportunity to have their work featured on the Google Student Blog and connect with experts from our education outreach team.

To both enter the competition and get more info, visit our 2016 Pay It Forward website.

Excited to see your submissions!
