HOW WE CELEBRATE HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

National Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15 – October 15 and traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans. The Central Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month by highlighting Latinx leaders from our local community through our website and social media. At the end of the month, CWHCC puts together a video of all those who were celebrated as seen in the video below.

We will be tying our Hispanic Heritage Month Highlights with our Estrella Awards on October 21. Those community members being highlighted will be the ones being considered for an ESTRELLA award, our most prestigious award.
