Florida Hispanic Heritage Month 2015
September 15–October 15:
"Recognizing the Past, Honoring the Present and Celebrating the Future."
Message from Governor Rick Scott
Florida's history has been written, in part, by the contributions of strong Hispanic leaders who have helped shape our great state. During Hispanic Heritage Month, we take time to recognize the contributions of Hispanic Floridians who have enriched our communities with their traditions and cultural practices while pursuing the American dream. It is my privilege to join all of Florida in recognizing Hispanic Heritage Month with this year's theme, "Recognizing the Past, Honoring the Present and Celebrating the Future." The 2015 Hispanic Heritage Month Contests will help students learn about the contributions and important role of Hispanic culture in Florida. Florida is proud of our strong history, and we will keep working to make Florida the best state for families to live their dreams.
Message from Lt. Governor Carlos López-Cantera
I'm proud to celebrate the rich heritage and diversity of Florida. It's an honor to serve with Governor Scott as Lieutenant Governor of one of the most culturally dynamic states in the nation. Hispanics in Florida have played a tremendous role in making our state the best place for families to call home.
